£70m Morecambe Bay clean up begins
C2V+, a joint venture between CH2M and VolkerStevin, has been awarded a contract for improvement works as part of United Utilities’ £70m wastewater treatment system upgrade within the Morecambe Bay catchment.
The upgrade work is required to comply with tighter regulation standards within Morecambe Bay set by the Environment Agency, which will be imposed from 2019. The work will help increase flow capacity to cater for future growth and development, reduce the number of stormwater spills per bathing season from Schola Green wastewater pumping station and improve the quality of treated effluent from Morecambe wastewater treatment works, using the latest treatment process technology known as Nereda.
The project, being delivered through United Utilities’ AMP6 CDP framework, started in March 2017 with completion scheduled for 2020.
The scope of work includes four main elements; the construction of two new stormwater storage tanks at Schola Green pumping station, installation of a new pumped pipeline between Schola Green and Morecambe, replacement and full upgrade of the treatment process using the Nereda technology and upsizing of the land-section of the existing outfall pipeline from Morecambe (Middleton).
