Plans for £40m Lincolnshire treatment plant on display

Anglian Water has unveiled plans for a £40m reservoir and water treatment plant to be built outside Lincoln.

The scheme is designed to supply water for homes and industry in and around the city.

Water would be taken from the River Trent and stored in a reservoir west of the A1133 near Newton-on-Trent and treated in a plant across the road.

The public will be able to view the plans at an exhibition at St Peter's Church in Newton-on-Trent on 4 July.

Anglian Water spokesman John Clare said: "This scheme is our response to the challenge of keeping the taps in Lincoln running in the face of a growing population.

"The reservoir would be able to store as much water as 100 Olympic-sized swimming pools and the works would be able to supply 20 megalitres of treated water a day."
