The new organisation was implemented from 1 October 1988 and Headquarters staff moved into new rented offices in Solihull early in December 1988. Area staff were fully accommodated in offices separate from Severn-Trent Water by vesting day. The Lower Severn and Upper Trent area offices are Pic owned, but new offices are under construction for these two areas and will be occupied during 1990. Separate flood defence depots were established by July 1989. A 24 hour control room was established in Solihull and independent field communications developed with use of pagers and cellular telephones. The Nottingham laboratory was transferred to the NRA during August 1989, thereby enabling the Severn-Trent region from vesting day to operate its own laboratory services independent of contract arrangements with Severn-Trent Pic. The facility is one of the most advanced of its type in the country and during the summer achieved NAMAS accreditation for 94 chemical analyses.
