Fifteen years of operating experience with Veolia's Actiflo™ solution.
Loch Turret Water Treatment Works is the highest water works in Scotland at 1,178 feet above sea level and located 2.2 miles north of Crieff, home to the Glenturret distillery &'The Famous Grouse Experience' which has its dedicated water supply from the plant
Among the largest drinking water plants in Scotland, Loch Turret Water Treatment Works was a direct filtration plant first put in operation in 1967 and designed to deliver water to a population of 70,000. The main purpose of Scottish Water's upgrade was to install a new Actiflo® clarification pre treatment process upstream of the existing rapid gravity filters to address the increasingly high peaks of raw water turbidity and colour in the loch. These raw water quality degradations adversely affected the operation of the rapid gravity filters and were unable to deliver the required throughput as they operated well below their design filter run time. In addition to the new pre-treatment, further work was carried out to provide a new energy recovery turbine, Multiflo® lamella sludge thickening, dewatering facility, and chlorine contact tank and filtration media.
