Blyth Sewage Treatment Works Refurbishment

We are going to invest £1.3 million to maintain the quality of the River Blyth estuary and coastal waters for the benefit of people, the environment and wildlife. The existing sewage treatment works was completely rebuilt in 2000 and in recent years it was discovered that some of the concrete structures have started to show significant deterioration. Our work will repair a concrete structure that is essential for treating wastewater from the Blyth area to make sure the estuary and coastal waters remain in good condition.

Update by Sarah Jayne Vickers

Good afternoon All, wanted to give you a further update as to the work we have been carry out at Blyth STW.

Planned works inside tanks 1, 2, 3 and 4 have been completed along with necessary replacement of parts. The team are currently underway with installing the bypass mainifold pipework and new mechanisms on the vales that make them automatically open and close. 

All being well we hope to have the flows transferred to the new pipework in July.

I’ve attached a few photographs labeling progress on site.
