Tyneside Water Main Cleaning

Our water mains cleaning programme of works has been ongoing now for five years and to date, we have achieved 221km of cleaning works to our mains. There are a number of pipe sections that we still need to clean, with a total length of 9.0km. We are starting this work in August 2018 and anticipate completion in the Summer 2019.

Update by Joan Tatters

Good Afternoon,

A short but sweet update from the MMB team........

Denton Road     -       Yes, we have broken ground and you will have noticed we are currently setting up the site and compound.

Salters Lane      -       Kevin and the team started the work as planned however, we found a lot of utility services which need to be addressed

Gateshead        -       Last night the "ice pigging" went well, forcing ice through the trunk mains to clean, is so effective. I hope to send you some photos in due course.

We just want to thank you all for your patience during the work.

Don't forget to ask us any questions you may have we would be only too happy to help.
