Update by Richard Johnston

Good afternoon everyone, quick update on progress..

We now have now completed reconstruction of the reservoir compartment, as a reminder this involved new walls and connecting the walls into the existing roof slab the compartment is now (please excuse the pun) water tight..

Specialist water proofing contractors are now sealing the refurbished compartment in and outside of the compartment in readiness to commence a month of testing, disinfection and water quality sampling we hope the testing will be completed towards the end of September, once the testing is complete we can then start to import material to fill the void left by the abandoned part of the reservoir this will involve a short term increase in traffic coming onto site for a short period of time, customers located along Linden Avenue are likely to note this increased activity we intend to advise on dates and durations when this work will be taking place.

Many Thanks
