Success for sewerage treatment works adoption project

Published

on

THE FIRST sewerage treatment works (STW) site, located in Betws Bledrws, was officially adopted by Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water on 10 December 2018, as part of a broader project to upgrade STW sites in Ceredigion. This is the first of 26 sites in Ceredigion to be transferred.

The transfer is part of a Ceredigion County Council led project to upgrade dilapidated post-war STW sites to sustainable and efficient sites that meet Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water requirements for adoption. The STW sites are unable to cope with the modern flow rate demands without the upgrade.

The Cabinet member responsible for Economy and Regeneration, Councillor Rhodri Evans said, “The treatment of sewerage is often overlooked but this essential service presents a significant challenge in rural communities.”

“This project provides a better and more cost effective service for the residents who use the sewerage treatment works. Council officers have worked closely with Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water and Natural Resources Wales to make this happen, and it’s good to see the first adoption take place.”

The STW Adoption Project was derived from the 2009 Housing Stock Transfer Agreement between Ceredigion County Council and Tai Ceredigion.

There are 26 STWs in Ceredigion serving over 250 properties in rural communities. They range from a small STW connected to three houses, to the largest STW serving 24 houses.

Working with Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water and Natural Resources Wales, the Project Team has built STWs that are modern, sustainable, efficient and more environmentally friendly. The foul sewer drainage network connected to the STWs will also be upgraded.
