Alderley Edge STW, Phosphorus Removal

Project Description

Alderley Edge Sewage Treatment Works (STW) is a medium sized activated sludge plant (ASP). In AMP7, under the Water Framework Directive (WFD), the site has to meet a new total phosphorus (TP) consent of 0.3 mg/l, and an Iron consent of 4 mg/l. To achieve these new consent standards, United Utilities installed a FilterClear® plant. The decision was based on a comprehensive whole life cost (WLC) assessment of various tertiary solids removal (TSR) plants. The FilterClear® skid was assembled and hydraulically tested off-site at Bluewater’s works, before being transported to site for installation on a flat concrete slab. The site was commissioned with Ferric dosing for P removal, and the FilterClear performance demonstrated that the compliance can be achieved reliably.
