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 Kevin McGargle

Happy New Year...

Just thought i'd provided a brief update, we have now recommenced the works at Miller Close Killingworth to expose the pipe ends ready for Chlorination and testing works next tuesday, once this is completed we will have to wait a period of a few days for the water sample results to be returned, we will be therefore looking to "tie in" this new pipework to the existing on Tuesday 15th January 2019 from 9am for a short window where the water supply will be turned off, cards will be posted by Northumbrian water in due course however we will keep you briefed on this nearer the time.

I trust you have had a great christmas and new year.

Kind Regards

Kevin McGargle - Site Manager
