Sacriston Sewage Treatment Works Upgrade

We are investing over £3 million to improve the performance of our wastewater treatment at Sacriston. This essential work will help to improve the water quality of the South Burn for the benefit of people, the environment and wildlife and ensure that the treatment facility continues to serve the community effectively.

Update by Jane Cooper


I’d like to introduce the team from Galliford Try that will be completing the work at Sacriston on behalf of Northumbria Water. My name is Jane Cooper, and I am the Customer Experience Coordinator for Galliford Try. Our Site Manager is Iain Cunningham and our Project Manager is Mark Goodby

Construction works have started on site, with the site setup being completed early January. Current works ongoing involve the reduction and levelling of ground for the new tertiary treatment and chemical dosing slabs.  Once this levelling and stoning work is complete then piling will be carried out late February.
