Update by Gabrielle Ward

Good Afternoon,

I hope everyone has been enjoying the sunshine over the last couple of days. 

Since my last update, the site team have been busy with the installation of the Primary Settlement Tanks (PST) 1 & 2. You can see in the photos below how they look now that the wall units are standing tall. The pipework from the PSTs to the Pumping Station, Distrubution Chamber and Draw Pit are also almost complete. 

Over the next couple of weeks both Primary Settlement Tanks steel work will be installed and the concrete will be poured internally.

Please keep an eye out for more updates over the next few weeks, and in the mean time, if you'd like to ask us any questions please feel free to leave a comment below.
