Section C is largely rural with long stretches passing through agricultural land. It spans the East Hampshire and Hart District Councils.

Preferred route description

Section C is around15km long and starts at the boundary of the South Downs National Park after the B3006 crossing. It deviates slightly from the existing pipeline route to avoid local businesses.

It runs east of Alton, skirting around Worldham Golf Course before a trenchless crossing of the River Wey and the Alton to Waterloo railway line into Alton Pumping Station.

From Alton Pumping Station, a trenchless crossing passes under the A31 and runs to the south east of Upper and Lower Froyle, avoiding Locks Grove and Lee Wood Sites of Importance for Nature Conservation (SINC). The section ends at Dippenhall Street.
