Carlton & Redmarshall Sewage Treatment Works upgrade

As part of the Water Industry National Environmental Programme (WINEP), we will be installing chemical dosing plant and other improvements to the treatment process to enable the site to meet the forthcoming Phosphorous discharge consent of 0.7 mg/l, which will apply from December 2024. The improvement works will cost around £3.4m and is one of 27 sites within the NWG region to receive this upgrade. Phosphorous is a nutrient and can cause algae to grow in watercourses, reducing biodiversity and river water quality.

Update by Gabrielle Ward

Good afternoon,

I wanted to take this opportunity to post our first update and introduce myself and some of the Project Team.
My name is Gaby Ward, I am the Customer Liaison Officer for Mott MacDonald Bentley (MMB) and will be conducting the engagement with our customers and posting regular updates on here. We also have Dave Groark, Northumbrian Water's Project Manager, and Dave Mortemore, Northumbrian Water's Customer Care Manager.
Working alongside myself at MMB is Jason Bradley, our Contracts Manager and Dean Wallace, our Site Agent. 

Our site team commenced setting up the site compound on Monday 30th October and are making great progress. The welfare cabins have been set up safely in the compound area including the installation of the tarmac plainings for the car park area. 

Keep a look out for regular progress updates and photos of our construction work being posted on the portal.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment below, and a member of the project team will get back to you.
