Forcett Sewage Pumping Station

Together with our supply partner, Interserve, we plan to carry out work between Monday 12th March 2018 and 16 June 2018. This essential work is part of an investment programme of over £2 million and will include the installation of a rising main connection between Eppleby Sewage Treatment Works and the Sewage Pumping Station at Forcett . We are working closely with our supply partner to make sure any disruption is kept to a minimum. If you are going to be directly affected by our work, our site team will let you know in advance. Typical working hours will be Monday to Friday, between 8am and 5pm. We will endeavor to keep any works outside of these times to a minimum. During this work, our vehicles will need access to the sewer pumping station which is located near the centre of Forcett village and the treatment works at Eppleby. We'd really like to hear from you if you have any queries so please get in touch using the 'Contact us' button at the top of the page or leave a comment below.

Hello everyone. Work is going well and you may have noticed the progress we have made through the surrounding fields. We will be carrying out some trenching work around the Sewage Pumping Station commencing on Monday 7th May 2018. We expect this work to last until the end of the following week Friday 18th May.  We will have a fair amount of equipment on site and will be making a bit of noise. We hope to mimimize this as much as possible and there will be no traffic controls in place. Thanks for bearing with us, hope you all have a lovely weekend. Brian
