Felbridge STW, Phosphorus Removal

Project Description

Felbridge 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 0.25 mg/l, and an Iron consent of 4 mg/l. To achieve these new consent standards, Southern Water 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.
