The epic engineering behind a glass of Manchester tap water

This is a short video preview for the next Making Manchester programme due for live broadcast on ALL FM 96.9 and 0900-1000 GMT Monday 25 January 2016.

The programme will feature the Victorian civil engineering which since 1894 has brought drinking water almost 100 miles from the Lake District to Manchester.

Secondly the programme will investigate the award-winning green technology that nowadays treats Manchester’s sewage, producing farm fertiliser and green energy in the process.
