The Schola Green Wastewater Pumping Station site, is part of the Morecambe Catchment Strategy Project, which aims to reduce the number of spills from Schola Green WwPS into Morecambe Bay to meet new consent standards.
The upgrade work is required to comply with tighter regulation standards within Morecambe Bay set by the Environment Agency, which will be imposed from 2019. The project will help increase flow capacity to cater for future growth and development, reduce the number of stormwater spills per bathing season and improve the quality of treated effluent from Morecambe.
In order to comply with these standards, C2V+, a joint venture between CH2M-Jacobs and VolkerStevin, will complete major works at the main pumping station within Morecambe - known as Schola Green. In addition, a major upgrade is required at Morecambe Wastewater Treatment Works (WwTW) which is situated near the village of Middleton.
The project, which will be delivered through UU AMP6 CDP framework, started in March 2017 with completion scheduled for 2020.
