Embleton Sewage Treatment Works Upgrade

We are investing over £3 million to improve storm and biological treatment at Embleton sewage treatment works to meet the demands of an increasing population in the Embleton catchment. Our sewage treatment works aid NWL in improving the quality of rivers and coastal waters for the benefit of people, the environment and wildlife.

Update by Gabrielle Ward


I hope you're all well and enjoyed your Jubilee celebrations last weekend!

Just a quick update and some progress photos from our work on site. 

- The overpumping and installation of the Haigh inlet screen is now complete. The Haigh inlet screen controls flows and screens solids that are contained within the flows. 

- Landscaping around the Sewage Treatment Works are ongoing, with some areas now complete. 

- The pumps are now installed at the pumping station.

- The Motor Control Centre (MCC) Panel installation is complete.

- The NSAF Blowers have been secured to the concrete plinths.

I have included some photos which link to the bullet points above for you to take a look at. 

As always, please feel free to leave a comment below if you have any questions you would like answering. A member from our project team will be more than happy to help.

Have a great weekend!
