Project Description

Client: Morgan Sindall Grontmij. Joint Venture – MGJV

Esholt upgrade to support 750,000 customers

Morgan Sindall was awarded a £44 million contract by Yorkshire Water Services to upgrade Esholt Waste Water Treatment Works in Bradford, Yorkshire. The old plant was more than 100 years old and required new percolating filters and an activated sludge process.

Esholt is Yorkshire Water’s largest wastewater treatment works, spread over 300 hectares. It treats waste from more than 300,000 homes, plus industrial waste equivalent to a population of a further 442,000 people.

The redeveloped plant now has the capacity to treat up to 3,240 litres per second of wastewater and supports 750,000 people in Bradford and North Leeds. It has also improved water quality entering the River Aire and ensures environmental compliance with the European Union’s (EU) Freshwater Fish Directive which comes into force in 2010.
