Work is proceeding well on pipeline management in Windmill Hills Park.
We have completed laying the pipework for the cross connection between the two strategic mains and we’re now carrying out the commissioning process. This involves pressure testing the pipework to ensure there are no leaks, chlorinating to deal with any nasties that may have gotten into the pipes during manufacture or pipelaying and finally taking bacteriological samples to ensure the main and water inside is suitable for human consumption. Once all these process are complete, the final connections to both mains can be completed and the cross connection brought into service.
This will mark the end of the enabling works and will allow the mains to be taken out of service, one at a time, without interruption to your water supply.
The next major task after some backfilling and site housekeeping will be to isolate the larger of the two mains to enable the required alteration to its pipework.
I’ve attached some photos below for those interested. Thanks for reading
