Murton Flooding

Together with our supply partner, ESH-MWH, we have undertaken a detailed study of the sewer network to establish the cause of flooding in the area. We want to keep you informed about our investigations and work we are considering in the Woods Terrace area.

Update by Christine Taylor


I thought it would be a good idea to give our customers a quick insight to what our team have come up against.

As you will all be aware the team on site have been attempting to tunnel through the ground with the new sewers.  This has been a long and difficult journey which is continuing.  We have hit challenging ground, with clay, sand and rocks.  I thought you may be interested in seeing the size of the rocks we have encountered, so I have attached a photo. 

We are still on track to open the road temporally over the Christmas Period. 

Keep watching our portal for updates.
