Essex & Suffolk Water has completed work on a £1m project to benefit customers in the Great Yarmouth areas. 

The work at Ormesby Water Treatment Works (WTW), in Ormesby St Michael, will add resilience and protect water quality for the 98,000 customers the site serves.


The project, which began on site in October 2022, adds robustness to the treatment processes, helping to ensure customers’ water is clean, clear and tastes great.


A further £500,000 is being invested at the WTW to install new monitors that will help the site team to more quickly identify and resolve issues with the raw water it treats, to further protect customers’ supplies.


Will Tann, Project Manager at Essex & Suffolk Water, said: “The investment at Ormesby Water Treatment Works will support our ability to continue delivering high quality, great tasting water to our customers across the Great Yarmouth area.


“Through upgrades to elements of our treatment process, as well as the investment in monitoring, we have added resilience to this important site, which will add real benefit to almost 100,000 customers.”
