A total of £54 million is being spent to upgrade a water treatment plant in Oswestry, Shropshire.

United Utilities’ engineers will use innovative technologies which will result in 210 million litres of water being treated per day for customers.

They will also install two hydro turbines which will produce enough energy to power the plant, with the daily surplus being sent to the National Grid.

Graham Callanan, Project Manager said: “The works involve basically upgrading and modernising the existing old victorian Oswestry water networks and the intention is to preserve drinking water for future generations and to make it more efficient and also to make it environmentally friendly in a population expand.”
