Working through the night

Margate to Weatherlees Water Treatment Works

  • We recently worked through the night with our Client Southern Water as well as MTS and CJ Thorne to make the final connection for the replacement of 400m of 800mm diameter rising main, carrying wastewater from Margate to Weatherlees Water Treatment Works for treatment. By investing in this replacement main, Southern Water has increased the resilience of the network, thereby further protecting the environment
  • 27 tankers from MTS took care of flows from Margate while CJ Thorne made the cut in and connection of the main. The shutdown started at 10pm and the line drained over a couple of hours. Working with gangs at each end, the connection was completed by 7am. It was a long night for all involved and showed a huge commitment to getting the job done
