Annual Floods Prevented by Sykes Pumps

Every year in Catterick, North Yorkshire; Sykes Pumps are called in to prevent a disaster situation at a lake nearby. As the water levels rise, a local quarry is at risk of flooding. Sykes Pumps have expertise in averting disaster situations, and when necessary can rise to the challenge in an emergency.

Three Super Wispaset 150 Super Silenced Pumps discharge the excess water through an 18″ fixed manifold into a nearby stream preventing overflow into the quarry. These pumps are delivered with a 2800 litre fuel tank to ensure that the pumps can keep running for long periods of time, keeping control of the water levels.

Sykes Pumps are the UK’s leading pumping solutions company, and with genuine 24/7, 365 day service, they can respond to any water movement emergencies. For more information, please visit
