Here are some of the projects being carried out in your area:

  • At our Davyhulme Wastewater Treatment Works we’re at the forefront of generating renewable energy. We've spent £100 million on a programme that uses sludge that gets left behind after our treatment process, to help power our site. Work started in 2010 and took us 3 years to complete. Making the most of what you flush away means we’re also looking after your pennies.We're also investing £200 million modernising the wastewater treatment works to make sure it can keep up with growing demands. Our work starts this summer and takes us though to autumn 2017. 
  • We're over half way through our work in Tyldesley, investing £20 million to upgrade our sewer network. This will ensure we meet the demands of the 21st century helping to stop flooding to properties in the area.
  • We're working hard in Greater Manchester to improve the quality of the rivers and watercourses. Our work includes investing £124 million to improve the Manchester Ship Canal, £12.4 million on improving the River Irwell, £15.8 million spent on the River Irk and we're spending £6.1 million on River Croal improvements. That's good news for all of us including the fish!
