Colne Valley Sewerage Board

Colne Valley Sewerage Board

An agreement was made with the Colne Valley Sewerage Board by which the Corporation contributed towards the temporar ' y expansion of the existing sewage farm until the Gade valley trunk sewer is in operation. It will also contribute towards the extra construction cost of the latter arising from its enlargement beyond the originally contemplated size to take account of the development of the new town. The Corporation will bear the loan charges on this extra expenditure, its contribution falling in proportion to the rise in population and ceasing when the total population is about 30.000. As population increases further, the capital element in contributions will be repaid to the Corporation.
