The Bray Keleher Water Treatment Works (WTW) abstracts and treats a maximum of 45 Ml/d of river Thames water and is located on Monkey Island Lane, Bray, between Windsor and Maidenhead. The works is of strategic importance in maintaining supplies to the western region of South East Water (SEW). As part of the final determination of the AMP5 cycle, provision was made to increase the production capacity of the site form its then capacity of 45 Ml/d to the maximum Environment Agency abstraction licence of 68 Ml/d. This strategic vision was driven by the Water Resources Management Plan (WRMP) which seeks to identify measures required to ensure supply can be maintained while accounting for the long-term forecasts of consumption demand.

Strongford STW Thermal Hydrolysis Plant (2018)
By ABC Stainless   |   01 Oct 2018   |   Water Treatment Works

Severn Trent is expanding its advanced sludge treatment capability at Strongford with a second thermal hydrolysis plant

Strongford STW is located at the north west end of Severn Trent’s region and covers a significant catchment in and around Stoke-on-Trent with a population equivalent of 350,000. The Strongford digestion plant currently processes 34 tonnes dry solid per day (tds/day) indigenous; and 14 tds/day liquid imports which includes 7 tds/day from the recently closed digestion plant at Checkley. Going forward the plant will receive a further 19 tds/day as 23% dry solids (ds) cake from the digestion plants planned for closure at Coalport, Four Ashes (Cannock) and Brancote (Stafford). This gives a total base load on the plant of 66tds/day. There is scope within the local authority planning permission for this to rise to 80tds/day (no net change in traffic movements). Exploiting the full capacity of the proposed THP would require a different way of importing sludge and/or exporting digestate.
