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

Hello all,

Hope everyone is keeping well.

Within the siphon drainage the installation of the new pipework to replace the chlorine mixer is complete with the air testing being carried out under supervision on Northumbrian Water.

The penstock chamber base has been constructed, with chamber walls reinforced.

Landscaping works have been carried out to reinstate the temporary access track used for works on the Spillway.

Thank you for your time.
