Update by Gabrielle Ward

Good afternoon,

I hope you all had a lovely long Easter weekend.

I thought I'd jump on and give you an update on what has been happening on site.

The MCC (Motor Control Centre) kiosk has been installed and the electrical wiring is now going ahead. The footpaths around the MCC kiosk and emergency generator slab have been concreted. We are currently in preparation for the installation of the HSAF (Hybrid Submerged Aerated Filter) which is a biological wastewater treatment system, and the final stage of the treatment works. I have added a photo below which shows the underground pipework coming up through the blinding ready for the HSAF. We are estimating the delivery of the HSAF to be in May. Once we have a scheduled delivery date, we will let you know.

In the meantime, if you have any questions you would like answering please feel free to leave a comment below.
