Keighley reservoir improvements enter next phase

Essential improvement work at Yorkshire Water’s Lower Laithes reservoir, near Keighley is about to enter its next stage.

The work is part of the company’s £60M programme of work to maintain and modernise reservoir sites across the region.

Since work began last November, the company’s reservoir contractor Mott MacDonald Bentley (MMB) has been carrying out a two phased improvement programme, which will see the clay core of the reservoir raised and the valve tower and wave wall modernised.

Work is also currently taking place to replace the existing reservoir overflow, with this work expected to be completed by Spring 2012.

As part of the work, from Tuesday 31 May, the company will be resurfacing the road which runs over the reservoir which was badly damaged by the freezing winter temperatures.
