Hexham STW Refurbishment

We are investing over £4.9 million to improve Hexham Sewage Treatment Works. This investment is being undertaken to address asset condition and performance concerns meeting the demands of the upstream drainage catchment. Undertaking this refurbishment work will improve the sites compliance resilience, reducing the likelihood of future pollution incidents, minimising operator intervention improving site Health & Safety. Our sewage treatment works aids NWL in improving the quality of rivers and coastal waters for the benefit of people, the environment and wildlife.

Update by Dave Eden

Morning All.

Time for another Hexham STW Refurbishment update:

The seeding of the new filter beds is continuing, and the samples continue to look promising. We have had some external sampling carried out and await the results.

The inlet works area is progressing well, with most of the ducts and draw-pits in place and the MCC slab, Wash water booster slab and flow meter chamber underway.

Coring into the existing balancing tank is currently on hold due to some tooling issues but is programmed to re-start 20/05/24.

Assuming all goes well we will be looking to start the super-structure of the inlet works in early June and also complete the final epoxy coating of the re-furbished distribution chamber around th same time.

Thanks for taking the time to read through the update. There is some further information in and with the photos.
