West Cumbria update
Since we started construction in 2017, our teams have been working hard to install new pipelines, refurbish old pipes, build new pumping stations, a new treatment works and two new service reservoirs - the new water network is really starting to come together!
The great news is that, despite many challenges including dry weather, extreme wet weather and flooding...even Covid-19, we're still on track to complete this unique scheme in 2022.
We’ve captured just how things are progressing with our plans to provide a more resilient and sustainable water supply for our customers in West Cumbria.
Changes to our working hours
There's usually longer daylight hours during the summer months, so our teams will be working extended hours to help get the land returned back to normal where we've installed the new pipelines. This will only affect our working sites in agricultural areas and not those sites within a residential setting.
