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 All

This weeks' update:

Village Site

The valve chamber near the new Pumping Station has now been poured and we are ready for the installation of the valve and the pipework. The land adjacent to the pumping station used for the site cabins is now ready for final landscaping, we are just waiting for a break in the weather. The drainage work within the carriageway is continuing and great news only approximately 10% left for completion. The drainage from the road up the farmers field to the lagoons is progressing however this has been hindered by more rock, although this rock is sand stone which is easier to remove.

Top Site

The lagoon liner is ready for transporting to site, however we need a drier spell so to heat weld the seams.

 The off-site muck is almost complete so there will be less vehicle movements.

As the nights draw in work will follow the daylight hours so the team will be finishing approximately 5pm.

Andy has sent me some photos.

Thank you again for your patience during this time
