Open Meeting Thursday 23rd
We are continuing to work hard to boost Mogden's treatment capacity by 50 per cent by March 2013, ensuring the works achieves high treatment standards and minimising the use of the storm tanks, even after heavy rainfall.
The focus of our work continues to be on mechanical and electrical installation, as most of the civil engineering work - such as building foundations and tanks – is now complete.
Last week we took delivery of two new 40-tonne transformers. In conjunction with the renewable energy that we generate on site, these will provide enough electricity to power the entire works, and are an important element of our work to upgrade the electrical infrastructure at Mogden.
This month sees the start of work to reduce the western embankment to its final height , which will be carried out in phases until completion in the autumn.
As a result, people living nearby are likely to notice diggers and dump trucks working in this area. The machinery will remove the soil temporarily stored on the embankment, and then use this to fill around the completed structures.
Meanwhile, work to build the last few treatment tanks is also nearing completion, and will be finished by the spring.
Working hours for the main construction activities will continue to be limited to between 8am and 6pm, Monday to Friday.
Thank you for bearing with us while we carry out this essential work. We apologise for any disruption it may cause and remain committed to keeping this to an absolute minimum.
Come and meet the team
On Thursday 23 February, from 5pm to 6.30pm, we will be holding an informal drop-in session, where you will be able to discuss the improvement work at Mogden with members of the project team. This will be held at the Ivybridge Link Centre in Summerwood Road, Isleworth. Free parking will be available in the centre’s car park and refreshments will be provided.
We will keep you updated on our progress, but if you have any questions please call 0845 641 0030, quoting 'Mogden'. Our lines are always open.
