RAINWISE SCHEME

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 Simon Bright

Hi

Our trenchless drainage crossing over Beach Road is currently going to plan. The way things are going, we hope to have the pipe over the road on Monday.

The open cut drainage is also going ahead as planned which will continue for the next few weeks.

We've installed the inlets and out lets for the first 3 basins. Next week we'll have GPS enabled excavators and dozers digging out the basins.
