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.

Update by Becky Gartland

Afternoon all, 

What a lovely few days we've had, lets hope the sun continues into the weekend!

You will see from the attached images that things are starting to take shape now within the area of the new pumping station. Yesterday we had Active Tunelling on site along with a crane to position the pumping station shaft concrete slab in place. Today crews have started to assemble a scaffold access tower internally within the shaft in preparation for mechanical & electrical works to be carried out. This will continue into next week. 

Further tarmac works have been carried out within the carriageway of South Terrace as the drainage installation progresses closer to the pumping station access track. These works will continue into next week. 

On Monday 20th September we are expecting delivery of a large excavator which will be used to commence work on the new Valve Chamber. 

I will be popping to site early next week to catch up with residents in the area so feel free to come and say hello :)

Have a lovely weekend!
