Wooler Water Treatment Works

As part of our ongoing investment programme and to ensure the highest level of customer service, we are planning to construct a new Water Treatment Works (WTW) at Wooler, Northumberland. It is intended that the new WTW will be located in the town of Wooler, at a site opposite Berwick Road Industrial Estate . The construction is expected to start in spring 2020.

Update by Chris Austin

Good Morning,

Following on from my previous post, I thought to let you know of some work we will be carrying out in preparation for building a new Water Treatment Works in the grassland opposite Berwick Road Industrial Estate in Wooler. We continue to follow UK Government guidance regarding COVID-19 and as it stands currently, our supply partner Mott MacDonald Bentley will be undertaking ground preparation work on our behalf on 26 May 2020 for a period of approximately six weeks. Although your water supply will not be affected by these works, you may see an increase in vehicular activity to and from the site. The initial work will allow for a new temporary access road to be created and ground preparation work will be carried out prior to the construction of the new treatment works. As mentioned, the timings of this work cannot be guaranteed however, we will continue to monitor Government guidance. We are committed to the safeguarding and wellbeing of our employees and our customers. The site teams will adhere to the social distancing guidance and we ask that during this difficult time that you also maintain a social distance from our staff once the work gets underway.

Should you have any questions about the work, please do not hesitate to contact me.
