Eimco Water Technologies has commenced work on an 18-month, turnkey MandE contract for Northern Ireland Water to design and build a wastewater treatment works for the village of Bushmills.

Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the project has presented Eimco with the challenge of designing and building a modern treatment works that will integrate into its surroundings, whilst maintaining consent limits during the construction of an Activated Sludge Treatment system.

Maintaining operation of the existing plant on the same site puts space constraints on the project, which is due for completion in September 2010.

At Portballintrae, a terminal pumping station and pipework will transfer effluent to the Bushmills facility for treatment before it is discharged to the River Bush.

The project includes a requirement for a significant amount of landscaping, including provision of an area for walking and angling.

Phil Burrows, project manager for Eimco, said: ‘We are having to achieve a consistently high level of treatment (20:30:3(mg/l) BOD:SS:NH4+) for discharge to the River Bush, and allow for the huge fluctuations in population, which in peak season can double to almost 9000pe’.
