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.
