£0.5 million minewater scheme to go ahead

Polluted minewaters expected to overflow from an abandoned mine in Northumberland will be treated to protect local watercourses, the Department of Trade and Industry announced in October. The Coal Authority will fund the installation of a passive treatment system at the former Whittle colliery, near Alnwick, where minewaters are expected to overflow in 2001. The scheme will cost some £450,000, with annual operating costs of up to £80,000.
