East Hetton Colliery Land Reclamation, Co. Durham
Removal of the coal slurry waste from the bottom of Kelloe Valley.
During coal mining operations prior to 1983 at East Hetton Colliery, a dam had been constructed across the valley to retain and store the coal slurry waste that was produced from the coal washing plant.
The reclamation works required the removal of the slurry from the valley, transporting it, and mixing it with the red shale of the pit heap to remodel the contours of the existing landscape.
