Watchgate Wtw is a major supplier of water into the Manchester area situated in Selside, Kendal, Cumbria.

This project involved the replacement of the Watchgate inlet polymer dosing rigs Regulation 26 works.

The inlet polymer dosing equipment, installed to assist purifying the raw water pre-treatment was in very poor condition and spares were difficult to source. The old pump installation was also very awkward to maintain.

The objective was to provide and install a versatile robust replacement system without disruption to the water supply. Four dosing rigs with eight pumps were installed, operating to supply polymer on four inlet streams into the plant which replaced the six existing pumps.

A bespoke bunded area in a new location now houses the new equipment, designed for ease of maintenance and operation. Failsafe operation compliant within the regulation 26 guidelines and has an array of valves to ensure there is always a reliable source of polymer to the equipment in the event of a failure. Main works were carried out by EWCE and subcontractors
