Whitton Village Sewer Diversion

Northumbrian Water is looking to investing £2M to improve the resilience and enhance the performance of the sewer network in Whitton Village Northumberland.

Update by Ian Davison

Hi All

On my previous portal update I mentioned that the design team had identified that the diversion of the combined sewer into the Rothbury network will marginally increase the downstream flood risk. Additional analysis has highlighted that the issue is complex and the scale of the works required to address the hydraulic detriment is significant.

As a result, the sewer diversion works have been rescheduled within the capital plan to allow the team sufficient time to identify a suitable solution. This work is now programmed to commence during the financial year 2019/2020.

I apologise for the delay and I will continue to keep you up to date with our plans for this essential work.

If you require any further information or advice please contact our Customer Centre on 0345 717 1100 or visit to request a call back from the project team.
