23 July 2021
THM to Contact Tank Hydraulic Restriction Upgrade
As part of our framework, we have been awarded a £1.4m contract at our Bough Beech site for Sutton East Surrey Water (SESW). We will be upgrading the current DN600 DI pipework to DN900 to continue the pipe sizing from the THM towers to the Contact and Treated Water Tank inlets. In case you're wondering, the THM towers are strippers that remove Trihalomethane (THM) from the water which can be harmful.
Work is due to start imminently.
