Rothbury STW Upgrade

This investment at Rothbury sewage treatment works is to improve storm storage and biological treatment to meet the demands of an increasing population in the catchment of Rothbury. Our sewage treatment works aids NWL in improving the quality of rivers and coastal waters for the benefit of people, the environment and wildlife.

Update by Gabrielle Ward


It's been a few weeks since my last update, so I thought I would come on here and let you know how work is progressing on site.

The hoppers (where sludge is stored, the separated liquid then goes off to be treated) have been concreted which will enable us to steel fix and concrete the two Primary Settlement Tank bases next week. Once this section of work is complete, the site team will then progress with the wall infill work.

Please be aware that there will be deliveries coming to and from site over the upcoming weeks, so as always, please take extra care when you are visiting Wagtail Lane/Road. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to comment on this update, or visit "contact" at the top of the page.
