GENERAL PROJECT

Hustledown Sewage Treatment Works Upgrade

We are investing £4m to improve the performance of our sewage treatment works at Hustledown. The work will involve the installation of new equipment which will provide additional chemical removal before the final effluent is discharged. This will aid NWL in improving the quality of rivers and coastal waters for the benefit of people, the environment and wildlife.

Good afternoon all,

Works have been progressing with the gravity pipeline from the filters to the final effluent tank, and preparation works have commenced on proposed filter base slab.

The team continue to progress with work although the weather has been challenging.

Good morning all,

Hope everyone is well!

Works have started on the pipeline and chambers and the new location of the Mecana Filter Slab has been proposed.

The team have paused works on the pipeline, to allow excavation works to commence. Which will include a concrete base slab to support the Mecana base unit.

As works progress you may see an increase in vehicle activity, but we will keep disruption to a minimum.

Thank you for your time. Please contact us direct if you have any questions at nwl.customer@esh.uk.com.

Good morning all and a Happy New Year!

You may have seen myself and my colleague Annah in the area this week, speaking to residents regarding the ongoing work in the area. If you see us next time pop over and have a chat.

The team have now completed the main compound and the concrete protection slab is in place across known services to allow wagons to enter site safely and to make sure there are no distruptions in the area. A land drain and soakaway has been installed in the verge area to assist in flood prevention whilst constructing our works.

Since returning back to work after christmas the crew continue to lay the new pipework (lets hope their wrapping up warm in this weather).

Thank you for your time. Please contact us direct if you have any questions at nwl.customer@esh.uk.com.

Good morning

Hope everyone is keeping warm and dry after the bad weather.

As you may have seen ESH and their contractor Stuart Marley, have undertaken maintenance works along the overgrown access track, leading to the Sewerage Treatment Works. Tree branches were lifted along the route to facilitate construction vehicles and delivery access without causing damage.

All works undertaken were witnessed by an Ecologist employed by Northumbrian Water with a specific brief regarding bats and their habitats.

Please contact us direct if you have any questions at nwl.customer@esh.uk.com.

Thank you

Good Afternoon,

Hope you are well?

I wanted to give you an update as to how we are progressing with the survey work at the site.

We have completed topographical and GPR surveys of Hustledown STW which, when we receive the results, we will be able to use to model the existing works and to aide our design.

The Ground Investigation (GI) survey was completed last week. This involved digging a series of boreholes and trial pits as well as taking samples to be assessed at the laboratory allow us to understand the ground conditions at the treatment works. I have attached a photo below.

Please feel free to leave a comment below should you have any questions or even if you just wanted to say hello, we will be more than happy to help.

On behalf of the project team, we are looking forward to working in your area.

Kind Regards

Jamie
