Phase two proposals - interactive map

Reservoir proposals

The proposed reservoir site, south-east of Sleaford, about halfway between Grantham and Boston. We’ve now developed an emerging design with ideas for the features it might include, and have also provisionally identified areas of land in the vicinity of the reservoir site that we could need for environmental mitigation and enhancement, construction, and wider uses.

Associated water infrastructure

When there is available water in rivers that would otherwise drain to the sea, we will capture the water and transfer it to the reservoir using new and existing infrastructure and waterways. We’ve carried out multiple stages of assessment to identify areas of land within which the new infrastructure could be located to transfer water to the reservoir, treat it and then supply it to homes and businesses. The proposed locations are between Torksey, West Lindsey, Boston and south-west of Peterborough.
