We are building a new waste water treatment works for Canonbie.

We are investing £4.5 million in a new Waste Water treatment works in Canonbie which will provide better waste water services for the area and help protect the environment around the River Esk well into the future.

The project, which started in late November 2019, involves the construction of a new waste water treatment works, pumping station, CSO and 1km of rising main and will replace the existing septic tank. 

Once the power supply is installed, this will allow the control kiosk to be brought to site. Minor changes will then be made to some manholes to divert the flows away from the septic tank to the pump station and the system will be made live. Final landscaping will then be carried out.

The works is expected to come into service by July 2022

This project is being delivered with our partner amey.
