southern water treatment works signSouthern Water, which is upgrading its treatment works by the Itchen in St Denys, is running a community grant scheme open to groups in the Portswood ward – but hurry if you want to apply as the closing date for applications is October 31.


On its website Southern Water says it’s “…investing £5.5 million to upgrade Portswood Wastewater Treatment Works in Portswood, Southampton.

“From late August 2017, we’ll be updating existing equipment, decommissioning older units and installing a more effective odour control system."

It says work is being carried out by Galliford Try and work should be finished in August 2019.

On its page about community grants, Southern Water says “…we recognise that sometimes our activities can cause disruption to the communities we serve,” and that it’s looking to “support the local communities who may have been affected by our activities”.

The company says it’s particularly keen to support projects which focus on healthy lifestyles, the environment and education opportunities within the electoral ward of Portswood - which includes St Denys.

The closing date for applications is October 31, and you can read more and download a grant application form and guidelines here.
