Harby STW is a small trickling filter works in Nottinghamshire, treating domestic sewage and trade effluent, containing dairy wastewater from a cheese factory.
In AMP6, under the Water Framework Directive (WFD), the site was upgraded to meet more stringent discharge standards, including a new total phosphorus (TP) consent of 0.25 mg/l, and Fe of 2.5 mg/l. To achieve these new consent standards, Nomenca (Severn Trent’s main contractor) installed a chemical dosing facility
and 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 fully assembled, tested and commissioned off-site at Bluewater Bio’s works, before being transported to site for installation on a flat concrete slab.
