Ovingham vertical turbine pump installation

This project is to replace two of the pumps in the raw water pumping station at Ovingham. These two new pumps will pump be able to pump up to 80 megalitres of water a day from the River Tyne to the water treatment works at Horsley. In order to vary the speed that the pumps will work at two new drives are being installed to control the speed of the pumps, together with new controls to monitor and control the pumps remotely.

Hope you enjoyed the Bank Holiday and the lovely weather we are experiencing.

Sadly this isn't a very pleasant post.................

Steve, sent me these photos to let you know of the fly tipping currently happening in the area, its so sad and frustruating too, why oh why!!!!!

I thought to let you know and we have decided to retrieve the piles of rubbish and put it in our skips to remove safely.
