Layer WTW Enhancements

To ensure Essex & Suffolk Water (ESW) can continue to deliver excellent quality water, we are planning the replacement of our sandwashing plant at Layer Water Treatment Works. The new sandwasher will be located in a new purpose-built yard to the west of the existing site.

Update by Kay Silver

Works to lay the water supply pipes to the new yard have started in the field behind the treatment works.  This work is completed under our statutory  pipelaying powers.  We have also cleared vegetation at the Layer Pit ready for the new outfall.  The main contract to build the sand yard should be placed by the end of March as planned, after which I will be able to confirm dates for the main works.

Our planning application has been submitted and will be available on the Colchester Borough Council's planning portal in the near future, subject to Council validation.
