UK firm Jones Bros Civil Engineering has completed the second phase of a major water treatment plant in Gwynedd, Wales on behalf of Welsh Water.

The work was completed after Jones Bros finalised the delivery of a new 840m pipeline, which will serve the Welsh village of Seion, Gwynedd, to meet the demands of an increasing population. An update septic tank was also installed to improve efficiency.

The first phase of the project ran from June to August 2019, with new outlets and inlets installed for the water treatment plant, as well as 15 manholes and a new headwall.

Phase two included the siting of an aerated reed bed, which is the main element of the wastewater treatment works. The facility does not use any chemicals, instead relying on the treatment from the reed bed.

The project is reportedly one of the first of its kind for utility Welsh Water in North Wales.

“The project has been completed on time and handed over to the client,” commented Gemma Roebuck, site agent for Jones Bros. “On the whole, it has gone really well, and the team worked well to overcome any issues and challenges that were present. Some landscaping and reinstatement work is now taking place.”
