Hustledown Sewage Treatment Works Upgrade

We are investing £4m to improve the performance of our sewage treatment works at Hustledown. The work will involve the installation of new equipment which will provide additional chemical removal before the final effluent is discharged. This will aid NWL in improving the quality of rivers and coastal waters for the benefit of people, the environment and wildlife.

Update by Rachel Rutter

Good morning

Hope everyone is keeping warm and dry after the bad weather.

As you may have seen ESH and their contractor Stuart Marley, have undertaken maintenance works along the overgrown access track, leading to the Sewerage Treatment Works. Tree branches were lifted along the route to facilitate construction vehicles and delivery access without causing damage.

All works undertaken were witnessed by an Ecologist employed by Northumbrian Water with a specific brief regarding bats and their habitats.
