What are the benefits?

  • Modernise and improve wastewater treatment processes at the plants
  • Improve energy efficiency at the plants
  • Improve the plants performance and resolve overloading issues
  • Ensure compliance with Urban Wastewater Treatment Regulations 2001

What is involved?

  1. Upgrade the aeration system at the plants, installing a fixed fine bubble diffused aeration system to improve energy efficiency
  2. Install associated brackets, blowers and pipe works and ancillary works
  3. Works will be carried out within the footprint of the plants, therefore minimising traffic disruption to residents and businesses in the surrounding area
