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 Joan Tatters

Good Morning All,

There has been a lot of activity with the buildings these last few weeks, here is a brief update on what's been going on:-

Treatment building: -

The subcontractors have continued installing the cabling within the building and MCC room. They have installed the point/vent pipework to the outside of the building to the relevant kiosk positions. The power on the caustic kiosk has gone ahead as well as the piping up of the break tank and booster pump setup.The pipework between the vessels have also been installed.

All this means is we can start to dry commission and fill vessel 1 for flush testing watch this space!

Pump station – 

The first test passed!

Again lots of prep cables installed to the pumps, turned pumps to check spinning orientation is working correct, went well which again means we are ready for water test.

Contact tank – the east contact and west balance tank passed drop test. Filled opposing sides.

Waste Water Settlement Tank – More installation of valves on the inlet pipes including all the cabling.


Thanks again for your understanding during our works
