Sherburn Upgrade

Starting in 2020, as part of a £8 million scheme, we will be carrying out essential work to improve the performance and flexibility of our wastewater network and wastewater treatment works in the Pittington and Sherburn areas of County Durham. The scheme will help to improve the water quality of the Coalford and Sherburn Becks, as well as the watercourses downstream. We are yet to confirm an exact date when the works will commence, however once we do we will contact you to ensure you’re kept informed and made aware of any possible disruption.

Update by Sarah Jayne Parvin

Good afternoon all, we want to make you aware that our investigation work will be starting week commencing 12th April for up to 4 weeks.

MMB will be carrying out Topographic surveys of the land whilst Dunelm will be carrying out the ground investigation work along the proposed pipe route from Pittington to Sherburn.

A topo survey sometimes called a land survey, uses highly specialised survey equipment to measure the position and height of both the artificial and natural topographic features on the site. Examples of natural topographic features Slopes, natural banks, and depressions in the land. Whereas Ground investigations are a means of determining the condition of the ground before beginning construction works. They focus specifically on intrusive geotechnical work such as trial pits and boreholes.

Whilst these surveys are being carried out NWG, MMB or Dunelm will not require access into your homes.
