Murton (Berwick) Water Treatment Works Upgrade

As part of our ongoing investment programme and to ensure the highest level of customer service, we are planning to extend and improve the existing Water Treatment Works at Murton, near Berwick. It is intended that the new works will be located adjacent to the existing buildings. The main construction work commenced in late 2018 and is due to complete in September 2020.

Update by Joan Tatters

Good Morning,

This months' update.......

The weather has played a great part in the progress, so the majority of the work has been preparing the external areas of the works.

The team have continued to clear and re-locate materials from the rental land and continued to haul subsoil and top soil around site to low areas where the are materials required. 

They will this week be completing the kerb line outside of substation and back-up generator before commencing prep of roadways ready for slab pours, so there are some concrete pouring to happen and will complete the building of a gabion basket wall, including backfilling works, then commence prep of roadways ready for the slab pours.

Here a few of photos.

Please don't forget to contact me to ask anything about the project, we are only too happy to help.
