Black & Veatch (Overland Park, Kan.;www.bv.com) has been appointed principal contractor for a program of works that will enhance and expand sludge treatment operations at Thames Water’s Basingstoke and Bracknell Sewage Treatment Works. The major upgrades will convert liquid treated waste into a sludge cake that offers a reduced risk of nitrate pollution run-off when introduced as a soil improver. Additionally, transporting sludge cake rather than liquid sludge off site requires fewer vehicle movements resulting in cost and waste management efficiencies whilst reducing the treatment center’s impact on the environment and neighboring communities. The improvements will help ensure compliance with nitrate pollution prevention regulations that govern the application of nitrate containing fertilizers. Lorry movements at Basingstoke will be reduced by 50% and at Bracknell by 80%. The upgrades will reduce the carbon footprint associated with the treatment of sewage sludge whilst increasing the capacity of each to accommodate future population growth. “These upgrades are part of our £5 billion program of essential works to improve water pipes, sewers and other facilities across London and the Thames Valley between…
