About this event

The project to design and construct of a new pumping station, pipeline and outfall was carried out by Mouchel and Farrans at an operational wastewater treatment works.

Farrans were awarded the contract for the design and installation of the sewer outfall which extends 2400 metres across an inter-tidal area.

The pipe was laid across salt marshes in the intertidal zone by an open-cut method of working whilst the last 150m was laid from marine floating equipment. The new storm water pumping station is was constructed on the existing wastewater treatment site.

Works on the £6million project were complex, with the site identified as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC), Special Protection Area (SPA), Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Ramsar (wading birds) protected site.

Speakers: John Clark and Phil Clishman from Mouchel.

Organised by Cumbria Branch in conjunction with Professional Engineers South Cumbria (PESC), and IMechE South Cumbria Area.
