A multimillion pound investment for Beverley’s Treatment Works at Waterside Road is being developed in conjunction with specialist contractors.
The project will see the Company invest over £15m to bring the site up to date so it can better handle the increased levels of domestic wastewater that are reaching the site.
Duncan Warner, Project Manager with Yorkshire Water said;
“We are committed to ensuring that the investment we make at the Treatment Works is fit for purpose for the future of the town.”
“We are working closely with specialist engineers to ensure a robust scheme is provided. We are checking that it is feasible to construct what we’ve planned for the site.”
Cllr Dominic Peacock said;
“I am delighted that the last three years of campaigning has resulted in this long-overdue development now coming to fruition.”
“All the work of local residents completing diaries during the late spring, summer and autumn months and raising the public profile of the problem has secured this investment.”
“This would not have happened so soon if the Ward Councillors had not kept this to the forefront of Yorkshire Water’s mind and convinced them this problem was not going to go away.”
Cllr Kerri Harold said;
“The odour problems have blighted resident’s lives for many years I am thrilled this vital investment is being made by Yorkshire Water in spite of certain quarters saying it would never happen.”
Cllr David Elvidge added;
“The benefits from this investment will also have implications across the region. All credit to Yorkshire Water for recognising this problem had to be dealt with on a far shorter time scale than they had been working to.”
