River Ouse barges to carry sewage

Help

Anglian Water is to use barges to transport sewage between Ely in Cambridgeshire and King's Lynn in Norfolk, replacing a fleet of lorries.

The sludge will be loaded into containers to travel the 30 miles up the river by barge to the sewage works, saving 16 daily tanker journeys between the two towns.
