Upgrade to Milbourne Water Treatment Centre commencing 28.5.24


Wessex Water is upgrading Milbourne Water Treatment Centre to improve reliability of the water supply to customers. This work will involve installing a new booster pump station to ensure supply to all customers in the event of an unplanned issue at the treatment centre.

Work will start on Tuesday 28 May 2024 for approximately four months and the upgrade will take place without interruption to local water supplies.

All the work will take place within the existing site which is near Monks Park. Some work may be visible during construction and there will be additional traffic using the access track to the site.

There may be some noise disruption while this work is carried out, but every effort will be made to keep this to a minimum.

Water supply services can be used as normal unless advised otherwise.

Wessex Water will shortly be writing to local customers to advise them about this work and a copy of the letter can be accessed on the link below.
