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.

The pumping station wet well is now installed and benching in the base has been completed and ready for mechanical electrical & pumps to be installed.
