Hosted by the CIWEM East Midlands branch

Event description

Severn Trent are undertaking a significant water project at Church Wilne near Derby. The project is to provide additional treated water (taking into account drought, climate change, the future reduction in groundwater abstraction and the need for more resilient water supplies) in a low-carbon, reduced-chemical treatment way, Decarbonising Water Resources (DWR).

The programme has been divided into a number of projects as follows:

  • Raw Project: This project covers the refurbishment of Witches Oak Abstraction Pumping Station (PS) and the construction of the wetlands pre-treatment.
  • Treated Project: This project is comprised of the design and construction of the new water treatment works (called Witches Oak WTW).
  • Pilot Plant Project: This project provides the design criteria for the full-scale processes selected to treat the River Trent water.
  • Distribution Project: This project is comprised of the infrastructure required to deploy the treated water from Witches Oak WTW into the Severn Trent grid

All CIWEM members and non-members are welcome to attend this technical talk hosted by the CIWEM East Midlands branch.

Part of the CIWEM Climate Emergency Adaption and Resilience series.
