£7.7m plan for a cleaner River Don

WATER quality in the River Don through Rotherham is set to improve thanks to a £7.7m boost for the town’s Aldwarke waste water treatment works.

The works currently treats 26 million litres of waste water from more than 100,000 people in the area and Yorkshire Water says the work improve its capacity to deal with heavy rain and predicted population increases.

The improvements will mean the water discharged to the River Don will be much higher quality, which will help fish and wildlife to thrive.

Construction work is being carried out by contractors Earth Tech Morrison (ETM), starting early in 2013, and is expected to be complete by the end of next year.

This scheme is part of a wider series of investments being carried out by Yorkshire Water throughout the Don valley.
