Esh Winning Sewer

Northumbrian Water are working in your are to improve our sewer network to reduce the risk of pollution incidents in Esh Winning. The Esh Winning sewer runs in close proximity to the Priest Burn and, at times of heavy rainfall, it can present a risk of pollution to the river. The solution we identified to this includes the installation of a new pumping station in the field opposite South Terrace and a new pipeline along the main road into the sewage treatment works.

Good afternoon,

I just thought I would pop on here and say thank you to the wonderful site team at Esh Winning.

This year, we at Esh Stantec decided to collect toys to donate to the Laffs4kids charity, as a friend of mine at Northumbrian Water has supported them for many years.  When the team heard what we were doing they immediately put their hands in their pocket.  This morning I went to collect the cash to go shopping for the toys.

Thank you guys, as always your generousity is very much appreciated.  I will spend your money wisely and keep you updated of our charity work.
