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

Afternoon Everyone,

This weeks progress report.....

  • The temporary tanks are being stalled today (4) so we can connect the system and remove the tankering element from the village.
  • The rock removal in the road is progressing really well as it's thickness is starting to reduce, it's currently two metres deep!
  • We are still progressing with the rock removal at the Mill side with the reduced noise techniques, the water levels have hindered us but the team are plodding on with 7 metres to go but it still as hard as ever.
  • The working area at the lagoons has been reinstated on the wood side and the gravity drainage is now complete apart from the lagoon connections.
  • An apron of concrete has been installed at the bottom of the field to ensure there are no agricultural issues as a result of the installation of th e rising main and gravity sewer.
  • There is reinstatement underway around the pumping station and the river bank wall so visually you should see a difference at the village.

Don't forget to get in touch if you require further information, I'd be happy to help
