Williamsgate Water Treatment Works

The raw (untreated) water from Thirlmere Reservoir will be transported through to a new water treatment works just off the A595 near Redmain.

The site has also been designed to merge into the natural contours of the surrounding environment, and our design also incorporates a green roof to help the site blend into the landscape.

Once the wider network and infrastructure is complete, the site will be capable of treating 80 million litres of water every day.

A network of new distribution pipes will take the treated water from the site to our service reservoirs, where it will be stored and ready to supply customers in West Cumbria. 

We're currently carrying out ground work so we can start the main construction of the new treatment works which is expected to take four years to complete.
