Whitby harbour pumping station

Update: Monday 16th April, 2018

We have a team of engineers on-site at our waste water pumping station based at Whitby harbour who are currently managing and devising a repair strategy for a fault with the pumping station. This is a complex repair job as access to the fault is hard to reach and involves an underwater civil engineer dive team.

Our contract partners Mott MacDonald Bentley are managing the flows of waste water from the pumping station on a 24/7 basis until a repair is complete.

We are working hard to fix this issue as soon as possible and are keeping local harbour-front businesses updated with our progress on a daily basis. We are also liaising closely with Scarborough Borough Council and the Environment Agency with regards to the latest situation and water quality.
