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.

Morning Everyone,

I thought I would take the opportunity to introduce myself on the back of Andy's post on Friday.

I'm Amanda Hunt, Customer Care Manager and part of the Northumbrian Water's team for this project 

To provide you with an update about our proposals letters were sent out on Friday to some 1200 customers inviting all to a drop in session on Tuesday 19 June 2018 at Springwell Social Club.

I cant make this event but the rest of our project team are really looking forward to meeting you and if you are available please pop along and say "Hello". 

If you can't make it you can always use the 'Contact us' button at the top of this page if you have any queries or would like to speak to us. Whichever way is best, we'd really like to hear from you.
