Haweswater Aqueduct Resilience Programme (HARP)

Haweswater Aqueduct Resilience Programme (HARP)

The existing Haweswater Aqueduct pipeline has successfully served 2.5 million people in Cumbria, Lancashire and Greater Manchester since 1955. However, time has taken its toll on the pipeline and this project is needed to minimise water disruptions and maintain high quality drinking water. HARP, delivered via Ofwat’s Direct Procurement for Customers approach required a Competitively Appointed Provider (CAP) to Design, Build, Finance and Maintain this major water resilience supply project. The HARP project will provide long term resilience and security of water supplies along 109km pipeline from the Haweswater Reservoir in the Lake District to the Manchester and Pennine region.
