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 again. I want to update you on the works that are happening at the Bellingham site. We will be replacing the filter media in the existing filter beds and refurbishing the the exising filter tanks.

The site team recevied the temporary filter treatment equipment two weeks ago. We have installed this equipment and are letting the filter media "seed" before we divert the sewage flows through the temporary treatment. It's all going to plan 

The next phase will be to divert the flows and start working on the existing filter beds.

The site teams will carry out the refurbishment works to the existing filter beds. We will replace the tiles at the bottom of the filter beds and place new filter media into the tanks.

The site works will be carried out without affecting our neighbours. We will have some additional deliveries to the site.
