GENERAL PROJECT

Crookhall Sewage Treatment Works – WINEP Phosphorous Removal

As part of the Water Industry National Environmental Programme (WINEP), we will be installing a chemical dosing plant (ferric sulphate and sodium hydroxide) to enable the site to meet the forthcoming phosphorous discharge consent of 0.9 mg/l, which will apply from April 2025. The improvement works will cost around £1.5m, 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. Our works will help to improve the quality of the downstream watercourses.

Good afternoon all, you may have noticed we didn’t receive delivery of the kiosks on the 21st June. Due to unforeseen circumstances this had to be rescheduled to the 5th July, as mentioned before we will be accessing using Thomas Swans site.

Thanks

Good afternoon all, works are progressing well on site ground stabilisation works are complete and the concrete bases poured, this is where the dosing plant kiosks will be installed. We are almost ready for delivery of the kiosks on the 21st June.

In preparation for the delivery of these 4m wide kiosks, we need to carry out some work along the site access track. Which include tree pruning and temporarily relocation/removal of fence posts to give us the clearance required. This work will be carried out by our contractor Marleys on Monday 13 June. 

On the day of delivery the kiosks will be traveling through Thomas Swans site so there is no requirement for vehicles to be moved of the roads surrounding the site access.

On behalf of the Project Team, we would like to thank you all for your patience and support during our essential work.

Good morning, we would like to provide you with an update since we started on site 21 February. All enabling works such as trimming trees and establishment of the compound are now complete. Temporary repairs to the road have been done and we intend to carry out permanent improvements in Autumn. Traffic Management has been installed from the roundabout, up the lane to the treatment works to ensure safe access and egress to our staff and the public.

This week ground stabilisation work has commenced, which involved drilling pile’s into the ground, in preparation for above ground works. This will take around 4 weeks to complete.

We would like to thank you for your patience throughout this project and If you have any questions or concerns please use the contact us button at the top of the page.
