sea water quality to be boosted by Bridgwater work
impressive photos show the vast scale of Wessex Waters work
to improve Burnham-On-Sea's sea water quality.
Wessex Water is digging very deep at the sewage pumping station
in Bristol Road, Bridgwater to boost river water quality in Bridgwater
- which is one of 12 schemes that form part of a £39million
project to boost the sea water quality in Burnham-On-Sea.
Storage capacity in the sewerage network is being increased, while
new ultraviolet treatment and monitoring equipment has already been
installed at Highbridge sewage pumping station and will also shortly
be provided at the Cannington treatment works.
Lucy George, assistant project manager and implementation engineer
for the scheme, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We wanted to give
residents a glimpse behind the scenes at Bristol Road and hopefully
these images do just that."
"Works are progressing well, with the below-ground shaft complete,
and our mission to upgrade sewerage infrastructure to help improve
Burnhams bathing water is on track."
Wessex Waters project to improve Burnham Jetty bathing water
includes work at Highbridge and Sloway Lane pumping stations, plus
Combwich and Dunball sewage treatment works.
Further south, work is due to start soon at Cannington sewage treatment
works and they are on site at Bristol Road, Chilton Street, East
Quay, West Quay, Blake Gardens, Colley Lane and Taunton Road in
Bridgwater. The project is due to be completed in 2018.
