BarhaleDoosan to build organic waste water treatment works

A joint venture between Barhale and Doosan has secured the job to build Yorkshire’s first natural waste water treatment works.

The Yorkshire Water project will see 4,000 sq m of interconnected ponds created on a natural slope This will then be planted to create a habitat of wetland plants that remove phosphorus from treated water before it is returned to the environment.

Millions of litres of water will be treated naturally by the 25 different plant species, totalling over 20,000 plants across the site. Plants have been carefully selected to promote diverse habitats, with particular attention given to creating environments which support bees and other pollinators to increase biodiversity.
