Marden Quarry Sewage Pumping Station

Together with our partners Interserve, we plan to carry out work between the 4 January 2021 until the end of June 2021 at Marden Quarry Sewage Pumping Station (SPS) although we will be carrying out enabling works prior to these dates. The project represents a £1.5 million investment which will see an upgrade of the mechanical and electrical equipment within the SPS.

Update by Shafqat Akbar

Hello everyone. Hope you all had a pleasant and safe Bank Holiday weekend. I today's update, I want to tell you about the many migratory and indigineous birds that are present at this nature reserve and how we ensure we do not affect the lives of these birds.

Our most interesting neighbours are the Canadian geese that have flown in for the nesting season. They nest on the island in the lake. We also have an abundance of water hens and mallards in the nature reserve. 

Our site teams have to follow some rules. We do not park our cars or machinery outside the coumpound and we monitor the noise levels from site to ensure we do not disturb the birds in the nature reserve. The site has a number of environmental "spill kits" that are available at strategic locations. These will be used in the unlikely event of an oil, petrol or deisel spillage.

We also have some magpies resident in the nearby trees.

Our protective measure are in place to prevent the site operations becoming a nuisance to our neighbours (both human and birds). We have not had any issues on site. Well done to the site team.
