Whitton Village Sewer Diversion

Northumbrian Water is looking to investing £1M to improve the resilience and enhance the performance of the sewer network in Whitton Village Northumberland.

Planned work

WHERE WE WILL BE WORKING AND WHAT IT WILL INVOLVE

To ensure that our sewer network continues to serve the community effectively our proposed work will see the construction of a new pumping station, rising main and gravity sewer. The new rising main (pumped sewer) will be installed within the highway through the village before crossing into the farmland to the east of the hamlet entering Silverton Lane towards Rothbury where a new gravity sewer will connect back into the existing sewerage network on the B6342. We are consider no dig techniques for the installation of the rising main, the gravity sewer proposed in Silverton Land will be constructed in open cut excavations, lane closures with traffic light control will be required.

Please refer to the March 19 schematic drawing posted opposite for further detail.

The work will be delivered in two phases and there will be an interim period where tankering of flows will be necessary.
