A £900,000 project to improve sewerage works in a North Somerset village has been completed.
Wessex Water has connected several homes in Loxton to the mains sewerage network which means the waste from those properties is now being processed at a new sewage treatment facility.
The modern works have replaced a septic tank that had reached the end of its operating life.
Bruce McAuslane, of Wessex Water, said: “We have connected a number of properties to mains sewerage to give Loxton a sewerage system which is fit for the 21st century.
“This major scheme has eliminated the previous pollution in the area and the local environment will improve as a result.”
Work in the village began in October and involved building facilities specifically designed to meet Loxton’s requirements.
This has formed part of a five-year investment plan to connect more than 500 properties to the main sewer network.
Brian added: “We would like to thank residents and members of Loxton Parish Council for their cooperation during this major project to provide high quality sewerage services to the village.”
