GENERAL PROJECT

Grassholme Reservoir Safety

Together with our supply partners Interserve we plan to carry out essential maintenance and improvement works to Grassholme reservoir over the next three years. These works are needed to ensure the resilience of the reservoir and improve its surrounding environment. During the work we will endeavour to keep disruption to a minimum and ensure residents and users of the reservoir area are not unduly inconvenienced. We'd really like to hear from you if you have any questions or comments so please get in touch using the 'Contact us' button at the top of the page or leave a comment below.

Update by Brian Hall

We are currently carrying out essential maintenance and improvement works to Grassholme reservoir. These works are needed to ensure the resilience of the reservoir and improve its surrounding environment. From Monday 9th September 2019 until December 2019 we will be carrying out groundwork excavations and setting up a site compound in the areas shown below. This may lead to some access restrictions although we will try to keep all pathways and access routes open and accessible. The reservoir will be maintained at its current level to enable us to deliver some investigations and preparation in advance of next years planned works. We anticipate the reservoir refilling later this year to its normal level. The reservoir will be lowered again early next year. The project team will continue to minimise disruption to reservoir users. It is anticipated that sailing and fishing will continue during the work although some unavoidable restrictions will be in place to ensure the safety of users as well as our staff.
