Monks Wood, North Shields Surface Attenuation

We are currently on site adjacent to Beach Road. Our scheme is to separate surface water flows from the combined sewerage system and store the excessive flows during storms. To do this, we are constructing new surface water and combined sewers together with a series of cascading basins in which to hold back the flows until the storm subsides and the existing sewerage system can accept the storm water.

Update by Christine Taylor

Good afternoon,

Over the last week residents in the area, will have recieved the letter from Northumbrian Water advising of the upcoming project, please find a copy of the letter here.

My colleague Tony Birkett and I have been in the area and will continue to speak to customers regarding our work over the next few weeks.  I have also attached plans, showing the artist impression of how the area will look once our work is completed. These can be viewed here and here.

Please feel free to contact me via the portal or on 03457171100 to discuss further.

Thank you
