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 Martin Curtis-Haigh


Hope you are enjoying the good weather. Just a quick update on progress so far and a short term overview of some plans ahead.

We have made good progress to the demolittion works to the existing south weir. The piles are now installed to the Dam Crest and we are currently getting areas set up to start installing the pre-cast concrete wall sections to the Southern Weir. I have added a few photos for you to view.

Commencing Friday 26-6-2020 you may experience some increase in traffic through Mickleton as we are starting to accept deliverys of the pre-cast concrete wall units. These will occur only a few times a week during our normal site hours. I have attached a map highliting the route.

Regrding demolition works we will be complete in a few weeks so any noise you may have experienced so far will reduce dramatically.

We will update you again in a few weeks with more information and progress photos.


Many Thanks
