Work Starting at Wickham Market Water Recycling Centre

We have work to do at Wickham Market Water Recycling Centre

We are investing £290,000 in a project to upgrade the existing water recycling centre off Spring Lane. To do this, we will be creating a new above ground storm tank within our site boundary; allowing a larger volume of water to be stored in the event of heavy rain fall.

This means our engineers will be working in your area starting in late March 2021 for approximately 7 weeks.

Things you need to know

How will this impact me during site set up?

Before we start work, we will set up a temporary compound within our existing site. During this time, you may notice a minimal increase of vehicle movements while we get equipment to and from site.

How will this impact me during construction?

Vehicle movements typically decrease after the first few weeks, but you can expect deliveries throughout our work.


As this work is taking place within our existing site, we expect disruption to you and your neighbours to be minimal. However, our work will require large machinery and equipment.

What hours will your team be working?

Our working hours will vary but we won’t start before 07:00am and will always aim to be finished by 17:00pm. There may be occasional weekend working between the hours of 08:00 and 13:00.


To reduce our impact in the area, we intend for deliveries to take place outside of peak school hours.

How will this affect my water/ sewerage services?

There are no planned interruptions to your sewerage during our works.

Why are we doing this work?

We are required by the environment agency to meet a standard level of overflow water for all our sites. This is just one of many projects that demonstrates our commitment to reducing flooding and being environmental custodians.

Because we invest millions in used water treatment processes such as this one, our river water is the cleanest it’s been since the industrial revolution. Nearly 90% of our region’s bathing water beaches have ‘Excellent’ or ‘Good’ water quality.
