United Utilitieswill build a £200million extension to its waste treatment plant on the banks of the River Mersey in a scheme that could create up to 350 jobs.

Dredging of Wellington Dock has taken place and work will begin next month although the building will take up to four years before it is completed. As a result the plant will be able to cope with 11,000 litres of waste a second, serving a million people in Liverpool.

Mark Walker, United Utilities’ Principal Project Manager said: “Our existing plant has played a key role in the clean up of the River Mersey and the new works will ensure we can continue to build upon that legacy.
