Update by Chris Wilson

Hi everyone, apologies for the lack of updates recently, this is due to recent staff changes.

Since our last update the site has changed alot with all aspects progressing well. We have completed the new wet well and valve chamber with the pipe install to the wet well and VC will be completed this week so we can proceed with installing the Valve Chamber lid and casting in the new year. The MCC base has been cast, MCC kiosk installed as well as the MCC itself along with associated electrical cabling. An isolator has been installed to back feed the MCC kiosk for heating from the old station, which was shut down as planned this week and waste was tankered to Broomhaugh STW. Our electrical installers have now installed most of the building services and works are progressing in line with programme.

We will provide further update in the new year.
