University Sewage Treatment Works Growth Upgrade

Upgrading the capacity of the sewage treatment works to meet the increased number of customers in the area due to additional new housing and student accommodation. Our sewage treatment works aid NWG in improving the quality of rivers and coastal waters for the benefit of people, the environment and wildlife.

Update by Gabrielle Ward

Good Afternoon,

I hope you've all enjoyed this lovely weather we've being having before the cooler weather arrives.

Work has progressed with pace on site, making the most of the summer months. We have completed the majority of the civil works associated with the new storm tank, including pouring the structural base, installing the storm return pump pipework and the above ground storm inlet pipe.  We are currently constructing the final section of storm overflow pipework which includes constructing two new manholes.  Our electrical subcontractor is busy glanding and terminating cables to the new control panel ready for commissioning works starting in October.

As always, I have added a couple of photos below.

Please feel free to leave a comment below if you have any questions you'd like us to answer.

Thanks everyone!
