Geobear has completed works to stabilise and fill voiding beneath two tanks at the Dowley Gap Waste Water Treatment Works, at Bingley in West Yorkshire.
The site had suffered significant flood damage back in December 2015, which adversely affected the performance of the waste water works with the potential for it to have a direct impact on pollution compliance.
Flood water had washed away the soil beneath the humus tanks, four in total, leaving a considerable void that required filling.
On behalf of Contractors JN Bentley, Geobear injected void filling geopolymer resin below two of the four tanks on-site, to replace the soil that had been washed away as a result of flooding.
Geobear managing director Richard Holmes said: “Although a relatively straightforward project, speed and environmental sensitivity were important, as well as being able to provide a simple and more cost-effective solution over alternative methods such as piling or back filling.
“We are currently tendering to remedy the voiding below the additional two tanks, and we should be undertaking this work shortly.”
Work took five days to complete with little disruption to the day-to-day operation of the treatment works.
