Wolsingham Sewage Treatment Works Refurbishment

Together with our supply partner Interserve we plan to carry out essential work at the Wolsingham Sewage Treatment Works in Weardale. This is a £6m investment that will see the site’s capacity increased in line with population growth in the area and help to maintain the highest possible standards of environmental protection. All of the work will be carried out within the existing site although there will be some widening of the entrance which will involve traffic control in the A689. Typical working hours will be Monday to Friday, between 8am and 6pm. We would really like to hear from you if you have any queries so please get in touch using the ‘Contact us’ button at the top of the page or leave a comment below. – Brian Ford NWL Project Manager.

Update by Steven Cruse

Hi Everyone,


we've now been onsite for almost 4 months now and work is progressing very well despite the issues we all face with COVID 19.

we've managed to reinvent our work practices to maintain social distancing and keep things going onsite.

Every person working on the site gets there temperature taken before they start works every day and we have sanitiser throughout the site


Anyone with any questions please drop me a line


Kind regards


Steven Cruse
