RAINWISE SCHEME
CURRENT WEATHER
12°C

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 Anthony Birkett

Hello Everyone

Well, bad weather has stopped play today! We started, but ended up like drowned rats, so had to call it a day early for the weekend. Obviously we need to dry the lad's kit, so the generator will be left on until 7pm this evening to power up the heaters. It will also come on for an hour tomorrow and sunday. We hope it doesn't disrupt your weekend too much.

Its nice weather - for ducks!

Regards

Tony
