Bellingham Sewage Treatment Works

Together with our supply partner, Interserve, we plan to carry out work between Monday 3rd February 2020 and Friday 21st February 2020. This essential work is part of an investment programme of over £2 million and will include repair and replacement work to the Sewage Treatment Works at Bellingham. We are working closely with our supply partner to make sure any disruption is kept to a minimum. If you are going to be directly affected by our work, our site team will let you know in advance. Typical working hours will be Monday to Friday, between 8.00am and 6.00pm. During this work, our vehicles will need access to the sewer pumping station which is located off Boat Lane. You may see some increase in vehicle movement. We'd really like to hear from you if you have any queries so please get in touch using the 'Contact us' button at the top of the page or leave a comment below. Ben Gilbert NWL Project Manager

Update by Shafqat Akbar

Hello everyone. We are back working at the Bellingham site. We are replacing the filter media. This project will be carried out in stages.

Today we recevied some temporary equipment. This equipment will allow the treatment works to continue some of the existing works are taken out of operation.

We used a mobile crane to to lift the temporary equipment into place.


The works were carried out without distrupting access to our neighbours.

We will be moving onto the next phase of the project and connect the temporary equipment to the existing works.
