Hi, looking for advice.
Our slurry pit was cleaned out last year and they hit a natural spring. Unfortunately, we’re getting about 1000 gallons of water entering the pit which is unmanageable and we just don’t have capacity to hold never ending supplies of water.
Has anyone had a similar issue? I wondered about lining the pit but was concerned about the membrane bubbling or breaking under the pressure if (more like when) there was water build up. Can anyone recommend specialist companies who can help? Based in Cornwall

Lining definitely won't work.
Only option is to drain the spring out of the lagoon and concrete the floor. Still very risky or start again.

We have the same issue with an earth banked silage clamp dug into a hill. Does anyone have a solution (please don’t say flexicoil along the wall🙈) short of digging out the whole bank and putting false wall in?

You need a wall round the base with a pipe behind it to take all that water away

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
