CHC starts on site at Hurst Impounding Reservoir
Cheetham Hill Construction has been appointed as Principal Contractor on the Hurst Impounding Reservoir Project in Glossop, Derbyshire for client United Utilities.
The design and build project requires the discontinuance of this large Category A raised reservoir. The embankment will be removed and used to bulk fill the reservoir basin, restoring it to its original appearance. Hurst Brook will also be restored to its original route through the basin.
A Fire Operations Group Pool and gravel trap will be constructed and bird and bat boxes installed together with the construction of numerous ponds, scrapes and hibernaculae.
Work commenced on site at the beginning of April and is due for completion before December 2014.
