First of all I know a lot of residents at the top of Reservoir Road are a bit cheesed off with the work going on with the new gas main. The contractor does seem to be taking his time and it is causing disruption to us as well. Hopefully they will be finished next week!!!
As for our progress the first half of the new reservoir is in service and we have started to put the soil around the outside and build the embankments to hide the concrete structure.
The second half will be filled next week to carry out the 7 day leak test. Once this has passed the reservoir will be drained, cleaned and refilled ready to go into service.
I am hoping we will be completely finished by the end of September if not before. I have been told it gets very bleak in the winter at the top of the hill. 😄😄
if anybody has any questions feel free to ask away.
