We have been carrying out some ground investigation work around the reservoir over the past couple of weeks. This should be finished by the end of this week. Next week we will be starting to establish our site compound with access off the road leading to Cote House Farm Caravan Park. We have selected this location as we think it will be the best location to minimise disruption.
You may have noticed the current discharge of water through the scour valve into the River Lune. We need to bring the water level in the reservoir down about 4 metres temporarily to do some investigative work. Due to the amount of rain recently we are discharging water through the scour valve into the river. It looks quite spectacular but the river is handling it nicely.
We will further update over the next couple of weeks as the site develops and we have more news.
