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, 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. 

Work began on the new pumping station next to the village hall in January 2020. Most of this infrastructure will be underground and the area alongside will be landscaped. At the same time a 1km rising main will be constructed, from pumping station to the new treatment works.

The construction work is expected to take around 12 months to complete.
