Sewage works plans revealed

Have your say

PLANS to overhaul Sheffield’s Blackburn Meadows sewage works at a cost of £78 million are being put on show.

A drop-in event is being held at Tinsley Green Community Centre, on Norborough Road, all day on Tuesday, when residents can find out how the revamped works will reduce the risk of flooding, improve river water quality and boost biodiversity.

Contractor Earth Tech Morrison will start work from the end of this month to replace much of the plant’s treatment facilities, with completion due by September 2014.
