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 Morning,

It's been a while, I thought I'd let you know I will be dropping in some letters to residents Tuesday morning.

As you know, we have now successfully completed the new sewerage works in the village and this has been up and running since Autumn 2019.

We will be returning during week commencing 6 July 2020 to complete localised stabilisation of the riverbank in the vicinity of the pumping station.  We will be placing large boulders along a 22m section of the river bank, on either side of the concrete outfall and completing some outstanding reinstatement. 

It is anticipated these works will be completed within four weeks and there should not be any direct inconvenience to local residents.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
