Improved Water Supply For The Area
Greater Security For St Osyth Supply

St John's Road partly dug up can be seen at the top, where traffic lights were
used to controled the flow of vehicles heading to and from Clacton.


Martin Henderson, Head of Operations for Tendring Hundred Water, was asked by this Web Site for information on the major works we have all seen taking place. He kindly replied as follows:
We recently completed replacement Service reservoirs and Pumping Stations to the East of Clacton at Pork Lane Great Holland and to the West of Clacton at the junction of Dead Lane and Hollybush Hill. (This latter development is the work on the left hand side we see when travelling from St Osyth and turning into Dead Lane going towards Great Bentley).

Service Reservoirs (or water towers) hold treated drinking water and help to balance out demand and provide a local reserve should anything go wrong. The 2 replacement sites are located near but outside the area they serve and hold up to 8 Ml (Million litres) each which is enough to secure the downstream supply for up to about 24 hours. The new sites replace three existing sites, two in Clacton and one in Frinton which have reached the end of their useful lives and are not really in the best position some 60 or so years after they were built. The new sites increase the amount of water and protect St Osyth and Walton in addition to Clacton and Frinton.

Almost 50% of the average supply will normally get to Clacton via St Osyth. There is an existing 15 dia. pipeline from Lamb Corner to Pump Hill but if this were to fail the supply to Clacton would not fail but would be below an acceptable standard. Duplicating this main with a new 400mm diameter main, will ensure that an adequate supply is available even if one main fails or has to be taken out of service. When both mains are available there is a small but worthwhile reduction in energy used to pump water to Clacton due to the reduced resistance.

We are also taking the opportunity to improve the flow metering, cross connection and road crossing at Pump Hill where the works are almost but not quite finished.



The existing 15 inch old main can be seen in the foreground. The blue pipes are at the flow meter location (the meters will be fitted later) and are 150/200 mm diameter.
The 400mm diameter main is not in this picture.
