Thames Water to build first new sewage works since 2005
Thames Water’s new chief operating officer has announced the company will build its first sewage works since 2005, in Guildford, Surrey.
Steve Spencer signed the deal with Guildford Borough Council today and explained how the new modern facility will cater for a growing population and eradicate odour while improving the local environment.
The new works will be built on brownfield land and replace the existing site which Guildford Borough Council will use for local housing. This will be the first new sewage works to be built by Thames Water since Reading STW opened more than 14 years ago.
Sewage works will benefit businesses and customers
Spencer, who starts as chief operating officer this month, said: “We’re delighted to be involved in this regeneration project working with Guildford Borough Council to boost the town and local area.
“The new sewage works will not only allow the development of Weyside Urban Village but will also have real benefits for our customers and businesses for generations to come. With the combination of climate change and population growth, modern facilities like the one planned for Guildford will help us meet future challenges across London and the Thames Valley head-on.”
Spencer, the company’s former chief delivery officer, takes over from Lawrence Gosden, who will move into a new asset management director role for the next 12 months. Both remain on the Thames Water executive team.
