Congratulations to the Bamford WTW project team for winning Gold in the Severn Trent Annual Recognition (STAR) awards. Severn Trent’s Chief Executive, Tony Wray, presented the team with this fantastic accolade for the category of ‘Future Impact’.
The STAR awards identify the efforts of individuals and teams who have made a real difference to Severn Trent Water by ‘putting the customer at the heart of everything we do’.
The Future Impact award recognizes the team’s effort at Bamford WTW to protect a local population of toads whose Spring migratory route crosses the site. To safeguard the toads, the project team worked closely with ecological specialists to collect and translocate them to a nearby lagoon where they can safely spawn. This has been widely acknowledged as an excellent example of ecological best practice.
Commenting on the award, Bill Hinchcliffe, program manager for Severn Trent says, “this is a great result for the Bamford team and well deserved recognition for the hard work that went into rescuing all those toads.”
