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

Good Morning

Just a brief update on our works at Miller Close Killingworth, it may appear that we aern't doing much on site but rest assured we have been completing pressure testing and chlorination of the main that we have installed, we are now in a position to carry out tuesday next week the connection of the New main to the existing in the footway adjacent the layby, this will result in a loss of water supply from 9 am for a brief time, thereafter we will complete the bakfill and final reinstatement works to the area.

You will be card dropped on this by Northumbrian water's local workgroup.

Hope you have a great weekend.

Kind Regard's

Kevin McGargle - Site Manager
