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 Bethany Oakley

Good afternoon all,

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 Mott MacDonald Bentley (MMB). Going forward, I will be taking on the Carlton and Redmarshall works and will therefore be keeping you up to speed with the works and providing updates on the Customer Portal.

I wanted to give you a quick update on the progress following the last update and I will also include some photos.

I am pleased to say that we have recently installed the two chemical dosing kiosk we have also installed the MCC kiosk and the MCC electrical panel which is great progress!

The Site Team have cast the concrete mecana slab and have taken delivery of the mecana units. The concrete base in the primary settlement tank excavation has also been installed. 

The electrical works are currently ongoing with the subcontractor, Intellect, and work is ongoing with MMB on the primary settlement tank and associated pipework.

As always, should you have any questions you'd like to ask us, please pop this in the comments below and a member of the Project Team will respond. 

Thanks again for your continued patience and cooperation.
