Improving Thanet’s ageing sewers

What we’re doing

Because Thanet’s sewers were built over a century ago, they’re starting to show their age.

Between Summer 2018 and Spring 2020, TPMD are completing a £34.5 million rehabilitation scheme on behalf of Southern Water across Broadstairs and Ramsgate.

These improvements follow on from work completed in Ramsgate in 2015 and are the second of three phases of work.

Covering 170 streets, this work will make sure Southern Water can continue to take the wastewater washed away from the toilets, kitchens and bathrooms to the treatment works for cleaning – providing customers with a reliable wastewater service into the future and helping to protect the environment.

Who we are

TPMD is a joint venture formed in 2018, and is made up of Terra Solutions, Pfeiffer and Matt Durbin Associates. Having worked on phase one of the Thanet sewer rehabilitation we’re familiar with Thanet’s communities and infrastructure.

Health, safety and wellbeing

Nothing we do is so important that we cannot take the time to do it safely and without harm to anyone’s health and wellbeing or damage to the environment. We carry out our work remembering safety first.

Working in your community

As we’re working in residential streets across Broadstairs and Ramsgate, minimising impact on residents is a priority for us.  We’ll always tell you before we start any work that might impact you.
