A complete refurbishment of the 2 boreholes and pumping station works at West Hyde, will take place starting at the end of January 2020. The work will take about a year to complete and the contractors will be using part of the North Pynesfield car park for their cabins and equipment storage.
As usual HS2 is to blame, as the pumping station in Moorhall Road had to be shut down and the loss of abstraction from this station must be taken up by the ones from West Hyde going North to Watford.
To change abstraction allowances an application must be made to the EA. We gather this has been done by Affinity, but are unsure if or when this would be granted. We will, of course, keep you up-to-date as we learn more from our sources for information and the Guys from Affinity.
We must assume this is work that needs to be done, other wise Affinity would probably not start the process until the decision is made whether HS2 is going ahead.
As members, please keep an eye on just what is going on and report to the committee if security of the lakes is compromised.
