The work, part of a £7million investment from the water company, will help to strengthen the company’s already robust water treatment process, reducing nitrate levels even further and enhancing the overall water quality in the surrounding area.
David Hartley, Anglian Water spokesperson, said: "We’re always looking for ways to improve our treatment processes and this work is another example of our commitment to ensure that we’re working as efficiently and effectively as possible.
“Water quality is of the utmost importance to ensure that we continue to provide our customers with the highest standard of drinking water we possibly can. We are always looking to invest in areas right across the region, and we expect this work to benefit not only Grimsby, but the surrounding areas of north Lincolnshire too.”
The work, which is due to commence in the spring/summer, subject to planning approval, is expected to last two years and will be completed within the grounds of the current water treatment facility.
