Works commences at the River Lune

08 Aug 2019

Following the completion of the initial design and planning stage CHC have commenced the onsite phase of works at the River Lune at Caton.

The contract for United Utilities is scheduled to complete by the end of the year and is necessary to prevent eels becoming trapped in the raw water intakes.

The work involves removal of existing bar screens and the installation of three High Capacity Intake Screens. A new compressed air intake screen cleaning system and associated infrastructure will be installed along with all necessary pipework, between intake screens and the existing raw water intake pipes. Between the Caton Raw Water Pumping Station and Intakes we will be installing pipework and carrying out all the associated MEICA works.
