Peacehaven Wastewater Treatment Works on the Sussex coast, east of Brighton, is a vital link in the area’s sewerage infrastructure operated by Southern Water. It treats the 95 million litres of wastewater produced each day by local residents.
It is critical to avoid any blockages or damage to the screens and pumps that keep the treatment works in action.
MTS have been called in to work on the removal of loose lining material in an inlet well at the works. If the lining had become completely loose it could have posed a major risk to the site by causing blockages in the screening and pump mechanisms.
MTS crews have worked many shifts on site to remove all the lining from the inlet wall. This has included evening shifts involving complete shut down of the works as well as daytime working.
Our specialist team made confined space entry into the inlet in order to hand cut and remove the lining material.
The Covid-19 crisis has created additional challenges to what was already a demanding project.
Jason Diamond, Southern Water Operations Manager at MTS, said: “Our crews worked together with the Southern Water operatives in a very professional manner, taking into account the current Covid-19 restrictions. We are all key frontline workers and I am proud to say that we are continuing to achieve the high standards of service required of us by the water industry.”
