Consett Sewage Treatment Works Upgrade

Our proposed refurbished assets will allow us to remove more water from the sludge bi-product that is created when we clean the wastewater at Consett Sewage Treatment Works. The assets will reduce tanker road journeys thereby protecting and enhancing the environment. Our sewage treatment works aids NWG in improving the quality of rivers and coastal waters for the benefit of people, the environment and wildlife.
