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 morning and a very Happy New Year to you all!

I hope you had a lovely time celebrating over the Christmas period. 

Our site team have recommenced works from Tuesday 4th January where you may have seen them accepting deliveries of plant equipment and machinery in order for us to continue with our works. 

Here's an overview of the work that was completed on site last week and what can be expected this week:

Pumping Station Works Area

  • Installation of the PCC Pipework from new manhole 8 to the proposed new manhole 9 which is to be formed on the existing network pipeline. This is in preparation for the flows to be turned early this week.

Following the installation, testing was carried out from the Pumping Station back to the Sewerage Treatment Works to check the flows which were all working well prior to them being turned this week.
