We are investing £2.2 million to improve the water supply in the west end of Newcastle.

Update by Sarah Jayne Vickers

Good afternoon All, hope you are enjoying the amazing weather we have this week!

Another brief update to advise work is progressing as expected and we are happy to say Fenham West Tank is back in supply, providing you and your family with clean, clear water that tastes good.

Over the coming weeks we are doing the finishing touches and returning the site and its surroundings as they were before we carried out the work. This means over the next week or so you will see an increase  in activity while we build the wall, which was removed to allow access to the site, will be getting rebuilt, as will the palisade fencing at the current site entrance at Linden Avenue.

We have resurfacing work to complete on Linden Avenue, we do not have an exact date for this but will be in touch with the affected residents nearer the time.

I would like to thank you for your continued patience and understanding while we carry out these essential works, and as always please don’t hesitate to get in touch at or alternatively us the contact us link at the top of this page.

Thank you.
