Rain Water and Silt Storage Area Created at Roke Manor Quarry

A rain water and silt storage area has now been created and is located in Phase 1B of the quarry.

The ponds act as rain water storage for the site, allowing the water to then be used to operate the plant and for dust suppression.

The silt from the plant is also stored within the ponds, enabling the site team to stop using the centrifuge which was both costly and inefficient.

The silt now gets pumped via pipes direct to the ponds in Phase 1B, rather than being transported around the site by plant, meaning it is more economic and ecologically friendly.
