Project Pipeline: County Durham and Tees Valley

This work will boost the resilience of supply links between our reservoirs and treatment works in Teesdale, and parts of central and southern County Durham. Our investment will increase reliability, reduce leakage and provide high quality drinking water for customers for decades to come. This phase of the project - Phase 1 - will construct a new replacement pipeline from Lartington Water Treatment Works to Gainford and a new strategic transfer main between Whorley Hill SR and Shildon SR.

Update by Karen Alexander

Good morning

I spent a wet Wednesday this week in Barnard Castle marketplace, with colleagues from Northumbrian Water, chatting with local people. We talked about not only the work Farrans is doing on Project Pipeline, but also full range of other offers, such as the Priority Services, you can access through Northumbrian Water.


It was a tad damp, so I was glad of my hi-viz waterproofs.  If you missed us, you can catch us again next week on Wednesday 10 April. We’ll be back, rain or shine - keep your eyes peeled for the blue pop-up tent.


Kind regards
