The final phase of a multi-million pound programme to help improve water quality around the Channel Islands, led by a Cornish firm, has taken a major step forward.
The scheme to build a number of new sewage treatment and drinking water plants on the island of Sark is being carried out by Cornwall-based company H2OK on behalf of Sark Estates.
The plants will prevent the discharge of untreated sewage into streams and underground water supplies from a number of buildings on the picturesque island.
A giant water tank, which will form part of the new scheme, has now been transported by ship to the Island.
As well as the sewage treatment, H2OK has been commissioned to build and upgrade water treatment plants to ensure the highest standards of drinking water on the island.
Phil Badger, H2OK’s installations director commented: “The transport of this significant piece of equipment marks an exciting stage in this project. The scheme will put a stop to the discharge of raw sewage from these historic properties and provide safe and crystal-clear drinking water for the new developments.”
