As part of our ongoing program to improve our water supply network, we are investing more than £900,000 into a new pumping station in Brightstone Lane, Farringdon.
The pumping station will reinforce our existing network in the area and secure future tap water supplies.
Construction started on October 27 and we anticipate the new pumping station will be up and running by April 2021. Our existing pumping station in Brightstone Lane, which has come to the end of its working life, will then be decommissioned.
Work will take place during normal working hours and there may be some noise disturbance but our workforce is under strict instructions to keep noise to a minimum.
Please see below for regular updates on the project.

We are pleased to report the project to install a new pumping station in Farringdon is making good progress.
Our partnering contractor has installed the concrete foundations for the new equipment, which will strengthen our drinking water network in the area.
Work on-site will pause over the Christmas period in order to minimise disruption to local residents and is set to resume in early January.
We would like to thank our customers for their patience so far during the construction of this vital project.
