A blockage has been found between the pump out cabin and the facilities building which requires excavation work before a repair can be completed.

Unfortunately, currently we are not in a position to be able to carry out this work.

The facility for cassettes is in full working order.

The nearest pump out facilities are at lock 23W going towards Manchester or Aspley Marina below Lock 1E heading to Huddersfield.

Our contractors have attended the site yesterday (16/05/17) to investigate the fault with the pump-out at Slaithwaite Services.

Unfortunately, the issue causing the pump out be out of use is located underground and will require further investigation, we are going to have to dig it up.

This is going to take a few weeks to arrange and sort out, so the pump out is going to have to remain out of action.  We’ll update when we have more information.
