Sewage station with maximum flexibility

The ageing Utrecht sewage station is being replaced. Witteveen+Bos is supporting the Heijmans/GMB consortium with the design of the new station. Besides stringent future discharge requirements, the station’s inner city location means there will be very strict requirements concerning odour and noise, so a maximum effort is being made to come up with a flexible and futureproof design. An innovative robust design has been drawn up, with maximum flexibility for coping with future changes.

The new station will be equipped with innovative modular phosphate-removing sand filters that can be upgraded to a 1-STEP® filter for more far-reaching removal of nitrogen and micro contaminants. Facilities have also been included to enable removal in future of a significant amount of suspended matter and smells. This will allow the sewage station to produce clean water both now and in the years ahead.
