Design & Build of a new wastewater treatment works to provide increased capacity in the system to enable development growth in the surrounding area.
Echt WwTW was refurbished in 1994 with further work being done on the inlet in 2005. The works comprise: inlet works with screening, primary tanks, biological filter, humus tanks and pebble bed clarifier. Treating ‘Formula A’ flows, the new works were built adjacent to the original smaller works, which were decommissioned following relocation of the existing Haigh screen and transfer of flows.
The environmental impacts from the construction of these works were small and of short duration, namely the storm water overflow into the burn adjacent to the site and the final effluent rising main pipeline laid through the adjacent trees, with the following items given due consideration.
Significant Risks Mitigated:
