Cleaner seas for Sussex

We've invested £300 million on an environmental improvement scheme to bring cleaner seas to Sussex.

 

After more than 12 years of planning, work started in the summer of 2009 on our largest ever capital project and included:

  • 11 kilometres of new sewer tunnel
  • Two pumping stations
  • A wastewater treatment works
  • A sludge recycling centre
  • 2.5 kilometre long sea outfall.
     

The project ensures that the 95 million litres of wastewater produced each day by Peacehaven, Telscombe Cliffs, Saltdean, Rottingdean, Ovingdean and Brighton and Hove are treated to EU standards.

The new works and infrastructure, which were constructed by 4Delivery, met the compliance deadline at the end of March 2013.
