Lumley WTW - (Works here are now complete), Blackwell RWPS - (Works here are now complete), Warkworth WTW - (we are also installing new pumps at the river water intake) , and Broken Scar WTW.

Update by Joan Tatters

Hello,

As promised, here are some photos.

Last week the team took out the first of one of the old pumps and screen along with all associated pipework and metalwork. Have alook at one of our divers in action after removal of the screen.

This week we will be working on temporary work to enable us to install the new screen and pump while keeping the remaining old screen and pumps working 24hrs.
