How do you effectively, sustainably manage the wastewater created by a city with 400,000 people? Learn how it’s done at the Belfast Wastewater Treatment Works, which sits on the North Side of the Herdman Channel in the Belfast docks. Since 1999, this activated sludge plant has pumped and treated wastewater, benefitting hundreds of thousands of people in Belfast.
This tour, led by Peter Neeson Belfast WwTW site Manager, will begin with an overview of the site. After that, you will be guided around the various stages of the treatment process, finishing with a visit to the Terminal Pumping Station which handles flows from Belfast Storm Tunnel.
PLACE has partnered with the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) to bring you this project
