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 Amanda Hunt

Hi everyone

Just a quick update.

We have now received planning permission to go ahead with construction of the new sandwasher and we will be starting work as soon as we have discharged our pre-start planning conditions and made some final ecological and environmental checks. 

This could be as early as two weeks from now and we’ll keep you updated on this portal when we have confirmed dates.  We expect the majority of work to be completed this year, with final installation and commissioning early in 2024.

Best wishes

The Project Team
