"We have made good progress with our work to upgrade Mogden, which will significantly reduce the amount of partially-treated sewage that overflows into the River Thames following heavy rain.

"Our work to move and reshape the western embankment is almost complete, and we have nearly finished storing the removed soil around and on top of the new embankment, meaning it is temporarily taller and steeper than it will
be on completion. Where possible, we have created a step in the embankment to help indicate the final height.

"Retaining the removed soil on site will significantly reduce the number of lorries which would otherwise travel in and out of Mogden. Between 2011 and 2012, we will gradually move this soil to its final position, where we will use it to fill in around each new structure as it is built.

"After Christmas, most of our activities will take place on the Mogden treatment works side of the embankment, and will therefore be less noticeable from neighbouring properties.

"We recently started preparing the foundations for the additional sewage treatment equipment, which will continue into the New Year. This involves driving steel and concrete piles into the ground. Unfortunately, the nature of this work can generate noise and vibration, which we are monitoring.

"We have finished installing our temporary site offices in the north-west corner of the site, and they are now fully occupied.

"Our contractors, Black & Veatch, will continue to work Monday to Friday, between 7am and 7pm, with the main construction activities limited to 8am and 6pm. They will stop working by midday on Friday 24 December and will return on Tuesday 4 January.

"We are working hard to limit disruption as best as we can, which includes continually reviewing our working techniques.

"Thank you for your ongoing patience during this essential work.

"If you have any questions please contact 0845 6410030, quoting Mogden. Our lines are always open.
