The construction phase of this project is now complete.

West Hallington Reservoir Improvements

In order to maintain the safe operation of West Hallington reservoir there are works required to ensure the continued resilience of the asset in order to be compliant with the requirements of the Reservoir Act. In order to do this, it is necessary to carry out works to improve the drawdown capacity of the reservoir which will require construction activity from May 2022 until the end of July 2023. This will result in restrictions to access around the reservoir crest and an increase in construction traffic during this period.

Update by Julie Oakley

Good morning,

I am pleased to provide the final update -  the civils work on the project is now complete. we have arranged for NWG to carry an inspection which is booked in for 12th April. Until this time the fencing will be staying up so the reservoir will still remain closed off and hopefully we get some warm dry weather in the coming weeks and we will be able to carry out the landscaping.

On behalf of NWG and JN Bentley I would like to thank you all for your patients while the work has been carried out and I hope you all have a lovely Easter break.
