Morecambe's beaches

Our plans to improve Morecambe’s beaches

Working together with the Environment Agency and local authorities we’re proud to be doing our bit to improve our sewer systems across the region.

At Morecambe Wastewater Treatment Works, we are upgrading the existing treatment process so that it uses the latest technologies and ensures the effluent leaving the works meets Environment Agency standards.

How we’re doing it?

We plan to build two large storm water storage tanks and new pumps at Schola Green pumping station and update the wastewater treatment works at Morecambe. We also plan to lay a new 7km sewer pipe between the two sites. We need to make these improvements to our wastewater treatment to reduce how often storm water spills from the sewers and help ensure that the coastal waters at Morecambe Bay comply with the new European Union bathing water standards.

For more information, please visit our corporate website  or if you would prefer to call us, please ring 0345 672 3723 quoting project number C2V+ 80040093. We'll be happy to help. Alternatively you can read more about it in our guide to help improve bathing waters in Morecambe (PDF 719 KB opens in a new window).
