    Alwen Reservoir Catchment - Grip Blocking Project


    The Visitor Centre, Llyn Brenig, Denbighshire. LL21 9TT

    This is a joint meeting with the Institute of Water - Wales Branch

    Would you enjoy a day out on the Denbigh Moors? We will be experiencing some of Wales' best upland habitats and having a trip back 100 years to see how our dams were built. In the afternoon we will be having a tour of a recently upgraded water treatment facility.
    Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water's (DCWW) Drinking Water Catchment Team will be demonstrating how collaborative catchment management has been used in the Alwen Catchment to improve the upland environment. The Dam Safety Team will be sharing their responsibilities at DCWW reservoirs and we will visit the Alwen Dam, where work commenced almost exactly 100 years ago.  We will also hear from DCWW's Estates department who will be steering us through their responsibilites at DCWW owned sites.  

    After lunch there is the opportunity to visit the Alwen Water Treatment Works where we will be shown how changing upland water quality has led to multi-million pound investment to optimise removal of colour and dissolved organic carbon to minimise THM formation.
    The day will start at 10 o'clock and should finish by 2 pm.
    This visit is aimed at all Institute of Water and CIWEM members, particularly members looking into CEnv and CSci chartership or looking to improve their CPD.

    PPE required: Safety shoes and high visibility jacket/top (please contact us if you do not have your own PPE). As the event will be outdoors, please ensure you are dressed appropriately for the weather, including sensible footwear and warm, waterproof clothing.
