Tadcaster Emergency Flood Relief Pumps Already put to Good Use

One of the emergency flood relief pumps was called into action on Tuesday 23rd August 2016 to save the Tadcaster Albion’s Football Ground from flooding.

It appears that a storm drain was back filling from the river, the river levels rose over night, and one of the outflows non return valves malfunctioned and appears to have remained open slightly. The West Pump was deployed, and we managed to clear the area in an hour.

Thanks go once again to the Yorkshire West Riding Craft Masons and the West Yorkshire Mark Masons for supplying these Pumps.
