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 are all well?

Work continues at pace, making the most of the unseasonable mild weather.  We have completed construction of the HSAF Pumping Station Well, together with associated pipework and have started the construction of the HSAF concrete slab including drainage. The process of transferring the existing process equipment over to the new control panel is now well underway and is expected to be completed early December.  

As always, I have included some photos for you to view.

Thank you,
