Tunstall Reservoir Improvement Works

Together with our supply partners Esh Stantec we plan to carry out improvement works to Tunstall Reservoir during 2023. These works are needed to ensure the resilience of the reservoir.

Update by Rachel Rutter

Good afternoon,

Can you believe the weather this week, let’s hope we keep it all summer!

Over the last week the team have now connected the Siphon pipework to the new discharge chamber ready for testing and commissioning.

The new headwall to the settlement tank outfall has been installed and the new penstock chamber construction is ongoing.

Concrete slabs within in the spillway have been completed and work area reinstated.

You may see the team working in the field close to the compound while they replace pipework, this will be completed next week, with a further inspection in June.

Thank you for your time. Have a great weekend!
