Mid Wales


Stretching up into the breath-taking Elan Valley and Brecon Beacons National Park, our mid Wales region, is surrounding by some of Wales’ most beautiful and rural scenery.

Example of investment in area:

  • A £7.3m investment into phosphorus removal has been completed at Lletty Brongu Wastewater Treatment Works near Maesteg.  This scheme will reduce the phosphorous levels released  into the Afon Llynfi meeting a new permit limit amongst the tightest in Wales which has been possible due to the development of phosphorous removal technologies in the industry.

Building upon the success of our Event Duration Monitor (EDM) installation programme (2019-2020) we are currently investing £42m across Wales in our Storm Overflow Assessment Framework (SOAF). Over the next 5 years (2020-2025) this programme will use data from the EDM sites to prioritise wastewater assets for investigation, with the aim to reduce both the number and volume of storm water discharges to the environment. This will improve both watercourse amenity value and water quality overall. 

We are currently undertaking 32 investigations into a prioritised list of EDM trigger assets within the Mid Wales area.

A £19m investment has been started to install Pass Forward Flow monitoring on over 300 wastewater treatment works to enable us to monitor our compliance against our flow permits and assess whether we’re fully utilising the treatment works full treatment capacity prior to spilling to storm. This investment will take up to 3 years to complete. Pass forward flow is the minimum flow that an asset is required to pass forward before spilling to storm to ensure it remains compliant.
