Brockhampton STW is a medium sized activated sludge works treating the Cheltenham catchment, comprising domestic sewage, trade effluent and the effluent from
the Cheltenham race course. The works treats a FFT of 105 l/s. The consent limits are: TSS 25 mg/l, BOD 15 mg/l, AmmN 5 mg/l.
In AMP6, under the Water Framework Directive (WFD), the site has to meet more stringent standards, including
a new total phosphorus (TP) consent of 0.25 mg/l, and Fe of 4 mg/l. To achieve these new consent standards, Costain (Severn Trent’s main contractor) installed a chemical dosing facility and a FilterClear® plant. The decision was made based on a comprehensive whole life cost (WLC) assessment of various tertiary solids removal (TSR) plants.
The FilterClear® plant was fully assembled and hydraulically tested off-site at Bluewater Bio’s works, before being transported to site for installation on a flat concrete slab.
