United Utilities to host drop in sessions in Windermere

United Utilities is offering people the chance to find out more about the work it’s doing to help improve water quality around the Windermere catchment.

Staff from Cumbria’s water company will be hosting four drop in sessions so people can find out about the work that has already been carried out to improve the wastewater network in the area and about the company’s future investment plans. 

United Utilities recently announced it will start early on £19million of work to tackle storm overflow operations at Ambleside, Elterwater, Hawkshead and Near Sawrey.  This is part of £41million of investment in the catchment up to 2030. 

Visitors to the sessions will also be able to find out more about the work being undertaken through the Love Windermere partnership and the role they themselves can play in helping to keep sewers unblocked. 

The sessions are being held at:

Brockhole on the Lake: May 23 and 24 – 10am-5pm

Marchesi Centre: May 25 – 3pm–7pm May 26 3pm-6pm

Kevin Sayers, Area Engagement lead for Cumbria, said: “We’re determined to deliver a step change in our performance and its contribution to the overall health of Windermere. Many of us live in the local community and we care passionately about the lake. 

“These events will give anyone the chance to drop in and ask any questions they may have about Lake Windermere and United Utilities’ operations.”
