What is involved

The programme involves assessing the condition and performance of all the sites. We then determine the disinfection systems that need to be upgraded.

  • Chlorine contact time provision systems
  • disinfection systems using Ultra Violet (UV) where required
  • Monitoring instrumentation systems
  • Control, telemetry and automation processes

Benefits

The upgrade works carried out as part of this project will:

  • Improve the security of drinking water for residents and businesses
  • Improve disinfection systems and standards
  • Future-proof the security of supplies
  • Provide improved control of the systems
  • Ensure continued compliance with Drinking Water Quality Regulations
