Cleaner seas for Sussex

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

Our largest ever capital project 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.
