GENERAL PROJECT

Burnhope Reservoir

Together with our supply partners Esh Stantec we plan to carry out operational maintenance works to Burnhope Reservoir, adjacent Wear Valley Water Treatment Works, this year. These works are needed to ensure the resilience of the reservoir. The work at Burnhope Reservoir, which has a project value of more than £1.8M is planned to start in July 2022.

Project updates

Update by Rachel Rutter

Good afternoon,

Our site team are progressing well.

Last week they continued with the excavation and installation of the new cross connection 600 diameter Ductile Iron pipework.

Cutting operations were also carried out to the existing 800 diameter scour main in readiness for the removal of the pipe.  Once the pipe is removed the team will install the proposed concrete base, thrust block and associated valves and pipework.

We have now taken delivery of the new valves for the proposed 600 diameter cross connection works.

If anyone would like to discuss our works in more detail, please feel free to contact us by commenting on this post or sending an email to nwl.customer@esh.uk.com.

I have my fingers crossed that the sun will continue to shine for the next few weeks.  Enjoy!

Thank you

Good afternoon,

My name is Christine Taylor, the Customer Manager for Esh Stantec, the supply partner carrying out the works for Northumbrian Water.

We have arrived on site and set up our compound area within the reservoir boundary.

Stock proof fencing has been erected to segregate livestock from our working area.  We have excavated around the existing scour pipe and the existing water treatment 800 dia supply main to the treatment works in preparation of the installation of the new pipework valves and concrete thrust restraints.

The team have also carried out some temporary works in the form of installing a stoned ramp access to the outlet tunnel spillway in readiness to carry out the new proposed Outlet Tunnel foundations and associated new pipework.

In the upcoming week we are planning to excavate for the new 600 dia cross connection pipework from the existing Scour main to the existing Water treatment supply main in readiness to install the new pipework .

If anyone would like to discuss our works in more detail, please feel free to contact us by commenting on this post or sending an email to nwl.customer@esh.uk.com.
