Richard Graham MP at Netheridge Sewage Works

Gloucester MP Richard Graham visited Netheridge sewage treatment works to see first-hand a new £10 million investment project by Severn Trent Water to upgrade its treatment process, reducing odour for the local area.


The company is also generating its own energy at the site through its significant green energy programme. This is all part of its ongoing commitment to invest in treatment works like Netheridge.


“This investment,” said Richard, “will improve processing of all Gloucester’s sewage, offer capacity for treatment of the city’s food waste and increase electricity generated for the National Grid. Above all, Quedgeley and Hempsted residents will benefit from reduced smell.”


Gloucester’s MP was delighted to hear that equipment being installed incorporated quality Yorkshire steel.


“This is another considerable investment in our city’s infrastructure by Severn Trent Water. Although there will always be some smell from a sewage works,” Richard noted, “things will be better and the extra recycling potential is an added bonus.”
