People can find out what happens when Droitwich flushes
10:10am Saturday 31st August 2013 in News
PEOPLE in Droitwich Spa are being invited to find out what happens when they flush the toilet.
Severn Trent Water will open the doors of its Droitwich sewage treatment works on Monday (September 2).
The event will give residents the chance to learn more about the £2.5 million improvements which have been underway at the site since February.
Paul Acton, service delivery manager at Severn Trent Water, said: “Every day we flush away our waste water but few people know what happens after it leaves their homes. To find out more about this and our improvements, come along to an exhibition at the Hadley Bowling Green Inn, on Monday, September 2 from 4pm to 7pm. For those who’d like a tour of the treatment works, we’ll be setting off from there at 5.45pm.
“The improvements at Droitwich sewage treatment works will help to further reduce odours and protect the local waterways. We’re also installing new equipment to help filter waste water and remove more chemicals, which will further protect the local environment and improve service for our customers.”
To find out more, join Severn Trent Water and its contractor, MMB, at the Hadley Bowling Green in Hadley Heath, Droitwich. Light refreshments will be available at the exhibition from 4pm to 7pm. The team will escort visitors for a tour of the site from 5.45pm onwards. Please wear sturdy footwear, such as walking boots, to visit the works.
