To commemorate the achievements of Ardern, Lockett and Fowler at Davyhulme, the CIWEM Wastewater Mangement Panel and Aqua Enviro are organising a Centenary event on the 2nd and 3rd April 2014. United Utilities are the Lead Sponsor for the event and will be kindly hosting a site visit to Davyhulme.

The conference will involve two days of invited speakers covering the past, present and future of activated sludge. In addition to the conference there will also be a trade exhibition and a conference dinner held at the prestigious Town Hall in Manchester.

The tour of Davyhulme wastewater treatment works will incorporate a review of the site which is United Utilities’ (UU) largest wastewater treatment plant (352 Mld), serving a combined domestic and trade effluent load equivalent to 1.2 million people. It’s a crucial part of UU’s infrastructure in one of the most densely populated areas in Britain.
