Natural Capital Assessment of Yorkshire Water’s capital scheme at Rivelin Water Treatment Works: A Case StudyAECOM assisted Yorkshire Water to apply the Natural Capital Coalition’s draft Natural Capital Protocol (the Protocol) to a trial site at Rivelin Water Treatment Works.  This site is one of the key water treatment plants supplying the City of Sheffield and a £24m capital upgrade scheme had recently been undertaken to ensure the continued reliable supply of high quality water to customers.  A number of high level options were initially considered before two main solutions were assessed in more detail.  This pilot retrospectively evaluated the natural capital impact of the two upgrade solutions (the ‘notional’ and the ‘chosen’ solution) compared to the existing baseline infrastructure
