Elbury Hill Reservoir

Hello residents, The last couple of weeks on site at Elbury Hill have been very productive, we now have the full membrane system installed, this includes the sheet membrane which lies flat on the concrete slab and the liquid membrane which is painted on the concrete upstands in order to make the membrane as one. Next, a layer of geo-textile will be placed on top of the membrane, this is similar to a thick carpet which will help protect the membrane from the 40mm pebbles which will be installed at the end of the job. Next week will see the kerbs around the edge of the reservoir installed, and a start on the drainage. Thanks  James Twigg

Hello, A quick update from site, During the digging of the trenches it was clear that parts of it needed to be dug by hand rather than using a digger as the perimeter fence was too tight to get the digger in so this has delayed us slightly, the waterproofing works on the hatches (which sit on top of the concrete roof) went well and are now ready for the next stage, this includes applying a small concrete fillet along the bottom edge to remove the tight 90 degree angle, prepping the concrete using grinders to enable us to get a good key for the adhesive to grab on to once we applied the waterproofing bandage. As well as this, the main concrete slab has been jetted off to remove any dirt and primed ready to recieve the sheet membrane, weather permitting this will be installed in the next week or so. Thanks, James Twigg

Hello, I am pleased to say that all the of the soil has now been removed from the top of the reservoir and disposed of, off site. Trenches around the edge have been dug out and the soil cleared. We're now ready for drainage to be installed to allow water from the edge of the reservoir to drain away more easily. We're working on the concrete stands that house the entrance hatches these are now well underway and will be completed by the end of the week. The work also starts next week on replacing the waterproof layer to protect the roof of the reservoir. We will continue to maintain access paths for the local residents so they can continue to enjoy the area whilst we carry out the works.

Hello, A quick update for you all, The works began as planned on the 12th March, we have mainly been working inside the reservoir so not much for you all to see at the moment, Wednesday 21st will see us having a few deliveries (outside of peak times of cause) and then over the next couple of weeks we will be removing the soil overburden from the top of the reservoir and having it disposed of off site, this will see a slight increase in activity on the track, but please dont be alarmed as this will be managed by our banksman and again kept to within working hours as to not cause disruption in the evenings. I look forward to provinding you all with more updates in the near future and keep an eye out for the video update coming soon. Thanks James

Despite the bad weather weather and freezing tempretures, we have really been moving along nicely with this project, this is mainly due to the inside of the tank being a nice comfortable 14 degrees thanks to the heating we have set up and the fact we have increased labour to speed things up a little, this was to minimise the time on site and therefore minimise the disruption to the local community The over banding which is installed over the joints is now almost complete and as the weather has warmed up slightly we have managed to get the excavations on top of the reservoir back filled and reinstated. We have also installed a shiny new stainless steel ladder for safer access in the future.

Welcome to Minchinhampton Community Portal. Stonbury Ltd have been awarded the contract to carry out this planned work and mobilised to site on the 12th February. The work is planned to be complete by the end of March 2018. Severn Trent Water have taken one side of this reservoir out of service whilst we carry out the planned works. Most of the works are internal so not much activity will be noticeable from the roadside. We have an agreed compound set up to the left of the reservoir and have security on site during the nights so this site is manned 24 hours. Generators will be set up from day 2, these will run heaters as we need to create a certain atmosphere inside the reservoir to work in The site will be supervised by Stephen Jackson Stonbury Site Agent and managed by James Twigg Stonbury Project Manager. Stephen and myself will be on site a lot of the time so if there are any questions or problems please contact me on 07495902873 or Stephen Jackson on 07377671045 or via the Community Portal. We welcome your feedback so please add your comments to the portal updates during the construction period. We will provide regular updates with pictures and videos to the Community Portal throughout the contract so please log in to keep updated with our progress. Thanks, James

Welcome to Elbury Hill Reservoir Community Portal. Severn Trent Water have taken this reservoir out of service so the planned works can be undertaken. Stonbury Ltd have been awarded the contract to install a new membrane onto the roof slab. We hope to mobilise onto site on Monday 26th February This follows some work already undertaken inside the reservoir towards the end of 2017. The construction period will be complete by the middle of May. We will have plant on site as this will be used to remove the soil overburden, this will then be collected from site using grab hire lorries, fencing and signage will be used to clearly mark out the areas which are for pedestrians and which are not. There will be an increase in the amount of vehicles going up to the site location off Elbury Park Road, but we aim to keep the disturbances to an absolute minimum. We will have security on site during the nights so this site will be manned 24 hours. The site will be supervised by Tom Burke Stonbury Site Agent and managed by James Twigg Stonbury Project Manager. Tom and myself will be on site most of the time so if there are any questions or problems please contact me on 07495902873 or Stephen Jackson on 07495902921 or via the Community Portal. We welcome your feedback so please add your comments to the portal updates during the construction period.
