I’m Hedley Young and I’m Northumbrian Water’s Project Manager for the work we are planning to carry out at Otterburn, Rochester and Byrness Water Treatment Works (WTWs) over the next two years.
Each of these three existing WTWs will be replaced with new plants incorporating the latest technology.
This is a significant investment to ensure that local communities can continue to enjoy the highest levels of water quality and customer service for many years to come.
Work will begin at the Otterburn site next month, moving on to the Rochester and Byrness sites next year. Those of you who live locally will have received a letter letting you know of our plans and we will be giving regular updates here as work progresses.
We’d like to hear your views on this work and any queries, comments or concerns you may have. You can get in touch using the ‘Contact us’ button at the top of the page and a member of the project team will get back to you. We’d love to hear from you.
