Frome Valley Relief Sewer Project

The Frome Valley relief sewer will enable Wessex Water to provide an adequate sewerage system for new residents of areas such as Yate, Emerson's Green, Harry Stoke and Filton, where thousands of new homes are being built. To complete the sewer, they are constructing a 5km long, 1.8m diameter sewer pipe that will run from the north of Frampton Cotterell, westwards to Bradley Stoke (through the Three Brooks Nature Reserve). Most of the work will be carried out in fields rather than roads.
