Waren Mill

Construct new underground pumping station near centre of village. Install pumped rising main to reach new treatment lagoons approx’ 250m west of Budle Bay Campsite. Lay new gravity main discharging treated flows downhill past the new pumping station to a new Outfall near to the river mouth. Reconfigure other local sewers to re-direct flows to the new Pumping Station. Abandon the existing treatment works close to the Old Mill, make safe and tarmac over.

Update by Joan Tatters


Just to give our weekly update.......

The shaft rock blasting is now complete and if any future blasting is required it will be limited and in the trenched areas.

As you can see we are steadily progressing along the road closure and hope to be linking up to the opposite site in due course, again the ground conditions are proving to be difficult.

Seawall repairs are starting to take shape and we are intending to recycle the stone etc 500-600tones back into site.

We are on  target to start the river crossing on 13th August ground conditions pending and the  culvert installed has proved to be working even after the recent rain so this should alleviate previous flooding in that area. this space and I will keep you up to speed next week!

Have a great weekend.
