Springwell Village Proposed Covered Reservoir

Northumbrian Water proposes to construct a new underground service reservoir on land it owns off Mount Lane, along with related pipe work in the local area, in a £20m project that would likely see construction begin in 2020, following preparatory work on site. The proposed project will not only make the water supply to customers in Springwell Village and the surrounding areas more secure, but will also enable us to support the wider Wearside and South Tyneside areas with a more reliable and resilient water supply for many years to come. The reservoir would strengthen and future-proof the company’s existing network in the area, providing storage for around 50,000 properties. In addition the new reservoir will enable us to provide improved resilience to the water networks to the east of Springwell Village, benefiting a further 200,000 properties in this areas.

Hi

Looking forward to meeting Springwell residents on Tuesday 19th June at Springwell Village Social Club to hear your views on our plans for a covered reservoir for storing treated water. We'll be there from 2pm to 7pm so please drop in at some point if you're able.
