North Coast Wastewater Treatment Plant
The £45 million North Coast Wastewater Treatment Scheme for Northern Ireland Water (NIW) was officially opened in November 2007.
RPS, together with its joint venture partner, provided technical and project management services from concept through to construction, commissioning and handover.
This project has greatly improved the quality of bathing waters in the area by removing discharges of untreated wastewater. Four of Northern Ireland’s most popular beaches: Castlerock Strand, Portstewart Strand, Portrush Mill and Curran Strands (as well as the water in the tidal stretch of the River Bann) all benefit from the scheme. The new activated sludge plant should comfortably accommodate future growth in the area until 2030.
