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

Hi Everyone

Work has gone well on site this week.

We've planted the trees alongside the fence which was put up last week near to Whitehouse Primary School - these will need to be given time to establish once the weather improves.

We've also continued with preparations for digging the final basin at the other end of site - the stone base is in the process of being removed so we can complete this before leaving site before Christmas.

We will continue to work hard to get the job done as quickly as we can.

Have a nice weekend
