Site investigation for river clean up to start

United Utilities has announced that site investigations for a major scheme to clean up the River Lune in Lancaster will get underway next week.

The trial pits are being dug to provide information for a project to increase the size of the local sewer network, to protect the river from sewer spillages. United Utilities has said that the £9M project to construct two large new underground stormwater tanks in the city centre between 2013 and 2014 will protect local wildlife, and ensure cleaner bathing waters at nearby Heysham and Morecambe.
