Lockhaugh Sewage Treatment Works Screens Upgrade

Our proposed new screens will allow us to remove more solids from the influent. This will reduce maintenance activities and ensure an efficient site that is free of blockages and has significantly reduced wear and tear to the mechanical equipment. Our sewage treatment works aids NWG in improving the quality of rivers and coastal waters for the benefit of people, the environment and wildlife.

Update by Sarah Jayne Vickers

Good afternoon all, work is progressing well on site which was helped by the exceptionally good weather we all enjoyed throughout May.  We have constructed the new inlet channel which will eventually house the first new screen.  We are currently constructing the new concrete press slab where the two new washpress units will be sighted. Our specialist subcontractor will commence the mechanical installation of the two washpresses and screen in mid-July. Over the next four weeks we intend to complete the civil works associated with the modifications made to the inlet including completing new drainage and constructing the remaining concrete hard standings in readiness for the installation of new steel staircases and gantries.
