Yorkshire Water to begin £4.4M sewer upgrade

Utility Yorkshire Water is due to begin the latest £4.4M phase of a £58M upgrade to sewage, clean water and raw water pumping stations across North Yorkshire this month.

The new phase of work, beginning this month, is a £4.4M programme to upgrade 12 sewage, three clean water and two raw water pumping stations in York and Richmond. Work will be carried out by a joint venture of Mott MacDonald Bentley and Engineering Technologies & Manufacturing (ETM).

Courtneys sewage pumping station in Wheldrake near York will be the first location to benefit from the improvements. Mott MacDonald Bentley will refurbish the 1963 station from Monday, installing a large fibreglass underground storage tank with a 60,000l capacity. Engineers will replace the pumps, pipework and computer systems and demolish the existing building.

The region-wide scheme, which was launched back in October 2010, will see hundreds of pumping stations upgraded over the next five years.
