HOMEOWNERS in Halton are being asked to help United Utilities find thousands of missing private pumping stations. 

Private pumping stations help pump wastewater to the nearest sewage treatment works, and can often be in people’s gardens or on nearby land. 

A recent change in legislation means that UU will become responsible for many of these stations from October, next year. 

So far, 11 have been found in the town. 

If you think you know the location of a pumping station, call UU on 0845 026 5151, or e-mail privatepumpingstations@uuplc.co.uk
