Severn Trent to host community drop-in session ahead of £35m upgrades at Finham Sewage Treatment Works

Friday 21st July

Severn Trent is to give local people the opportunity to find out more about what happens at its sewage treatment works in Finham ahead of £35m improvements at the site.

The company is planning to make the investment to upgrade equipment at the site just outside Coventry to make sure the works can continue to meet increasing demand in the future.

Dharmesh Parmar, from Severn Trent, explains: “The sewage treatment works in Finham has been serving the community well for many years and we want that to continue.

“Some of our equipment is getting older, and environmental standards are also becoming tighter, so we need to make sure that waste is treated as effectively as possible which is why we’re investing tens of millions of pounds at Finham. Before we do that though, we want to give local people the opportunity to find out more about the work.”

The community session will take place at St Martin’s Church in Green Lane, Coventry on Thursday 27 July from 1.30pm to 7pm.

Dharmesh continues: “We’re really keen to speak to as many people as possible and this is an opportunity for them to not only find out about the upgrades at the site but also to ask any questions about the day-to-day work we currently do to treat sewage.”

All of the work on the upgrades to the sewage treatment works will take place on site and will not require any road restrictions, and Severn Trent does not expect there to be a noticeable impact to people in the local area.
