Looking after the Bathers and Birds

Wessex Water, Claverton Down, Bath, BA2 7WW

18:00 for 18:30 start

The revised Bathing Water Directive comes into effect in 2015 and its introduction will set tighter standards for bathing waters. Discharges from the sewage treatment works (STW) at Weston-super-Mare were understood to be having an adverse
impact on bathing water quality, with a risk that they would fail to meet the new standard. An AMP5 project was established to improve the quality of effluent discharged from the STW, and reduce frequency and volume of storm overflow discharges.

Stephen Tomlin, Sewage Treatment Planning Manager at Wessex Water, will explain the background and development of the improvement works at Weston-super-Mare STW. Stuart Lewis, Wessex Water's Treatment 1 Workstream Programme Manager, will discuss designand construction challenges. Mark Doughty, Principal Ecologist at Wessex Water, will present on the environmental mitigation aspects of this project.
