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 Alice Blackett

Good Morning

Following our last update, the Kiosk is now watertight around the control pannel and the electricians can commence powering up.

The live tap has now been installed into the existing structure and is working well and both gravity pipelines have now been completed and tested.

Works on the rising main have now been restarted and should hopefully be complete by the weekend.

Please see attached photographs of what our hard working team have been up to.
