Earth Tech Morrison awarded £8.3m

Earth Tech Morrison has been awarded an £8.3m contract from Yorkshire Water to improve the Eccup water treatment works in Leeds.

The aim of the Eccup project is to construct a new treatment stage to remove manganese and carry out base maintenance work on the plant to maintain water quality.

Civils work will include installing a new filter block and shaft for a pumping station and increasing wall heights from inlet channels to flocculators to allow throughput of 60 million litres of water.

The project is due for completion in November 2009 and work will start on site in August this year.
