Work is underway to put in a large underground pipe in East Yorkshire to cope with large volumes of water during storms.
The pipe, which is 1.2 metres in diameter, is being installed between Goole Carr Lane pumping station and the River Ouse.
The role of a storm release pipe is to safely divert excess water during a storm away from the pumping station and out into the river.
This is the latest phase of an important project to boost the resilience of Carr Lane pumping station and increase its overall pumping capacity by 20%.
Things have progressed really well so far, with the first large storm assist pump already in place, and now we're turning our attention to installing this huge underground pipe, which we hope to have operational by the end of November.
– Michael Ward, project manager for Yorkshire Water
We're keeping local residents and stakeholders updated through regular
updates and tours of the plant, and there will be opportunities in thefuture for those who haven't yet been able to take a tour of the pumpingstation to do just that and see the latest improvements for themselves.
