Lockwood Beck Reservoir Safety

Together with our supply partners Interserve we plan to carry out essential ground works maintenance, investigation and improvements to Lockwood Beck reservoir, starting on site on the 24th August and lasting for around 16 weeks. For the safety of all visitors, site users and those working on the project, the decision has been made to close the site for the duration of the work. I would like to thank adjacent residents and visitors for their patience while we undertake this essential work.

Update by Shafqat Akbar

The works at Lockwood Beck are progressing well but the weather will prevent us from finishing all of the works.

The installation of the tensar reinforcement on the embankment is almost complete.

The recent wet weather is has waterlogged the ground. We are not able to complete the construction on the top of the embankment in this site visit. We will agree a date for the return visit with Northumbrian Water. 

The works at the bottom of the embankment will continue as these will not be affected by the waterlogged ground.

We have started installing the temporary works adjacent to the redundant Northumbrian Water buildings.
