Bowburn STW Upgrade

As part of a £1 million scheme, we will be carrying out essential work to improve the performance of our Bowburn wastewater treatment works. The scheme will help to improve the water quality of Bowburn Beck, as well as the watercourses downstream. The main works are commencing in April 2024 and are due to be complete by September 2024.
