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

Good Afternoon Everyone,

The weather has certainly become "cooler" !!!

Lagoon Site

Once again, the weather has hampered the lagoon construction, the soil condition changes dramatically in rain, so mixed with the difficult drainage adjacent, to say the area is muddy is an understatement. I think it’s safe to say whilst all the team have battled on and the pipework at the bottom of the field nearby the campsite is now complete and has been passed for use is a HUGE milestone we may have to stall the lagoon work until the Spring.

Village Site

We have changed the way of cutting out the rock at the T junction to a “wire sawing” method as we need to adhere to the conservation requirements of no rock blasting. It’s proving to be a little slow as the weather doesn’t exactly help either.

I’m sure you will have noticed the high levels of the river I have taken a couple of photos as well of the reinstatement behind the Mill.

All the pipework at the new Pumping Station is now installed and the cover will be installed over the shaft before Xmas.
