Yorkshire Water investing nearly £8M at two WwTWs
Yorkshire Water is starting two schemes of investment worth £7.7 million at two wastewater treatment works in north Yorkshire.
The company is spending £5.2 million at Thirsk WwTW and £2.5 million at Bedale WwtW to improve the quality of water returned to the local water courses, Bedale Beck and Cod Beck, after treatment.
The spend is part of a £70 million investment from Yorkshire Water to improve 196km of water courses across the county to meet new environmental targets on phosphorus removal.
Yorkshire Water communications advisor Mark Allsop said: "This work will build on Yorkshire Water’s vision for Taking Responsibility for the Water Environment for Good.
"We’re committed to doing everything we can to improve our local environment and by completing this work we’ll exceed our target to reduce phosphorus and ensure the water we return to the environment is of the highest quality and deliver significant environmental benefits, and in particular to aquatic life."
A further £2.3 million scheme is already underway to lay a new sewer pipe from Bagby to Thirsk WwTW, which will also help improve the quality of the water in Cod Beck as Bagby WwTW is decommisioned.
