Wigan Flood Alleviation (FAS) Phase 1&2.3 Comments
Item #: 32436
This was my first visit since commencement of the scheme so it was a half day safety inspection and review.
Was the concreted pipe coming out of the hill left in situation or capped off I wonder, as at one time there was sign close to it asking folks to phone a certain number if it was flowing, I can only assume that it was an emergency sewage overflow pipe as even when it was raining I never saw any water flowing from it.
Cyril, on later photographs to be shown, the pipe was exposed and extended in the completed protection wall to outfall into the river.
Thanks Barrie, it must be an overflow pipe then.
