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.

Good Morning Waren Mill

Great weather again today, a little cooler though.

My update for this week.........

The blastings in the trench are scheduled as follows, however as Andy and his team have said the rock and hard material in the pipe trench is proving to be a challenge so, the decision was made to blast rather than the continual hammering thus lessen the noise impact. (these blasts are no where near the magnitude of the previous shaft blasts).The first blasts took place yesterday and were very successful.

WEDNESDAY 8/08/2018     BLASTING 11.00AM to 5.00PM

THURSDAY 9/08/2018         BLASTING 11.00AM to 5.00PM

FRIDAY10/08/2018              BLASTING 11.00AM to 1.00PM

The team are currently reinstating the drainage trench by Budle Bay Caravan Park, this will release more road and pedestrian traffic. This is also great timing for the farmer opposite to harvest his field. 

We are on target for commencing the work over the stream towards the Mill for Monday 13th as well.

Top Site

The earthworks are in full flow on the lagoon site and we are busy constructing the embankments.


I've attached some photos of both sites........oh and a cute little squirrel Andy rescued on the back road leading to the lagoons.
