SIRA understands the deep concerns of local residents about the delivery of emergency water. The committee has weighed up multiple factors in depth including ongoing costs, effectiveness, maintenance, and potential noise. Three tenders were considered and the committee agreed tender 2 Malcolm Thompson Pumps on balance provided the most effective solution.
The pump will be housed in a soundproof box. The pump won’t run passed 10 at night (water bookings can still be made during this time just not using the pump). After extensive community consultation we have arranged to finalize contract details on Monday with a view to the project being completed by the end of January.
In the interim, emergency water supplies have been arranged for those in most urgent need.
