Yorkshire Water to begin £5M Wakefield sewer upgrade

Utility company Yorkshire Water will begin a £5M upgrade to improve its sewer system and reduce risk of sewer flooding in Wakefield, West Yorkshire on Monday.

Yorkshire Water will work with contractor BarhaleWSP on a six month contract to increase the capacity of the existing sewer network and construct a 2.1km long new sewer.

The work will consist of enlarging a sewer on Lime Pit Lane and laying a new sewer between Beech Avenue and Yorkshire Water’s sewage works on Water Lane in Wakefield.

The work is part of Yorkshire Water’s £120M investment to upgrade its sewer network and treatment facilities in order to further reduce the risk of sewer flooding which can occur when sewers become overloaded during times of heavy rainfall.
