Northumbrian Water unveils investment plans for 2017/2018
New charges for 2017/2018 were announced by Northumbrian Water whilst at the same time the company outlined the continuing multi-million pound programme to invest in maintaining and improving the quality of drinking water and resilience of its pipe network.
Average daily charges for water and waste water services are just over £1 a day, an increase of 3p per day on last year. The average annual charge for water and waste water services is £390, an increase of £12 per year.
Yet £180 million is set to be invested in essential work including improving the sewer network in Whitburn and Sunderland and renewing 75km of pipework across the region.
To ensure customers continue to receive the best clean, clear and great tasting tap water, three major water treatment works will be updated at Horsley, Whittle Dene and Warkworth, as well as ongoing maintenance of all other water and waste water treatment works and pumping stations.
Work to protect homes from flooding continues to be a top priority. This includes looking at ways to slow down the amount of water making its way into pipes during times of heavy rainfall, using innovative and ground breaking approaches to sustainable drainage.
