Update by Kevin Packard

Hi and thanks for visiting our community portal for the Stratford St Mary Pumping Station refurbishment project. My name is Kevin Packard and I’m the Essex & Suffolk Water Project Manager . I’ll be providing updates on behalf of our project team throughout the life of the scheme so please remember to check back regularly to follow our progress.

We’re planning to start works in early April, commencing with our contractor Integrated Water Services (IWS) establishing their site office, stores and compound layout. This will enable us to create a safe working site and to provide access to site safely for vehicles and pedestrians.The following 6 weeks or so will involve the removal of some redundant equipment before moving on to re-siting the high voltage electrical substation from basement to an upper level. We will then be sequentially replacing the main raw water pumps and associated equipment. 

There will be delivery and collection visits by lorries as needed throughout the project as equipment is removed or delivered and should any larger vehicles be required at times (eg. a crane), information will be posted on the ‘Traffic Information’ tab. Please visit again later for more details.

To find out more please check out the various pages on this project site. If you have any queries, have a look at our FAQs or contact us via the comments.

I will be updating this site regularly as the project progresses.

Best Wishes, Kevin
