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

Good afternoon everyone, 

It's lovely to see a bit of sunshine back this afternoon after the typical autumn weather we have had earlier in the week. 

You may have seen our site team carrying out some welding operations this week on the rising main pipework. Once all welding is complete the pipework will then be ready to be installed into the open trench within the carriageway of South Terrace. 

We have also taken delivery of the PCC Valve Chamber segments this week, with 3 of them being installed into the base of the chamber along with 8 of the PCC wall panels also installed. Internal and external finishes are being carried out to the chamber walls which will continue into next week.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
