Bishopton Sewage Treatment Works Upgrade

We are investing £700k to improve the performance of our sewage treatment works at Bishopton. The work will involve an upgrade of the inlet system and flow monitoring. This will aid NWL in improving the quality of rivers and coastal waters for the benefit of people, the environment and wildlife.

Update by Bethany Oakley

Good morning,

I hope you are well and having a great week so far! 

I'd firstly like to introduce myself, my name is Bethany Oakley and I am a Customer Liaison Officer for JN Bentley. Going forward, I will be taking on the Bishopton STW and will therefore be keeping you up to speed with the works and providing updates on the Customer Portal.

Since our last update, I am pleased to inform you of some further progress.

We have since installed the following, Haigh screen, balance tank, MCC panel & Kiosk, NPG base and kiosk and 90% of the ducting.

Our contractor, Intelect have fitted out the MCC kiosk with services and have pulled majority of cables from the MCC to site.

We will soon be starting on the rising main pipework, storm returns pipework & the pumping slab.

I will post a further update in the next month or so however, if you have any questions you'd like to ask us, please pop this in the comment box below and a member of the Project Team will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thank you!
