Update by Ian Davison

Good Morning

Just a quick note on progress since the last update. As previously mentioned both primary settlement tanks have passed their respective water test, with backfilling now completed to the point where the contractor can commence the formwork (concrete support) for the top level capping beam. The new sludge tank is installed and its currently undergoing a 7 day water test. When passed it will be benched and we aim to have the access platform in place before Christmas. The auto de-sludge pumping station is being constructed and weather permitting concrete works which again should be complete before Christmas. We remain on programme and we continue to prep the site for the Christmas break.
