The Layer Sandwasher Replacement project is the first part of a £25 million investment programme at the Layer Treatment Works to ensure that we continue to deliver excellent quality water to our supply area.
The site has an existing Sandwasher which is many years old and requires replacement. The replacement sandwasher will be installed in a new purpose-built yard in the field to the west of the existing treatment works.
