Planned Work

WE ARE GOING TO INVEST UP TO £1.5 MILLION TO ADDRESS ENVIRONMENTAL RISK AND MAINTAIN THE QUALITY OF THE RIVER TWEED FOR THE BENEFIT OF OUR CUSTOMERS, THE ENVIRONMENT AND WILDLIFE.

This work comprises the construction of a new pumping station and rising main (pumped sewer) along with remedial works to the existing private drain which will subsequently be adopted as a public asset. The pumping station will be constructed in the location of the old laundry tank at the junction of the access road to Castle Hills House with the unmetalled access track serving the cottages. Currently the rising main is routed within the lower half of the unmetalled track before entering the fields to the east following the hedgerow before connecting into the existing network on Castle Terrace adjacent to Castle Hill Cottage. The final alignment of the rising main may be subject to change.
