Thames Water - Upgrades to the Sewage Infrastructure in Bourton-on-the-Water

By Parish Clerk Bourton-on-the-Water Parish Council

Bourton-on-the-Water Parish Council Contributor


Thames Water presented to the Parish Council Meeting on 7th February 2024 about ‘Upgrades to the Sewage Infrastructure in Bourton-on-the-Water’ with opportunities for a Q&A.

The presentation is available via this link. The presentation detailed plans for upgrades to the system to ensure better quality effluent would go into the river, reducing spills, making works more efficient and dealing with growth around the area. There would be a significant investment in the upgrade of the sewage treatment works and pumping station with the sewage treatment works from November 2023 to Spring 2025 and the pumping station from Spring 2024 until early summer 2025. The lane opposite the Rissington Road pumping station (HBW38 leading to Santhill Fishing Lakes) would be closed during works, and traffic management (traffic lights etc) would be in place on the Rissington Road.

Thames Water representatives responded to questions raised and undertook to provide further information about their local catchment area, what capacity the new works would provide for local growth and development and information on the protocol for phosphate stripping.
