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

Hello everyone

You may remember my last update where I predicted levels at the Reservoir returning to normal within 2 to 3 weeks? this was allowing for a rise of around 1foot per day and did not take account of the Lunedale weather. As it was the rain brought levels back to normal that weekend and as you can see by the below photographs it is very high right now. Ground work has been slow this last week due to the rain fall but we are continueing to establish the site. Hope this weekends weather is kinder for you
