Bringing clarity to the Scottish Highlands

A DynaSand® filter and Lamella® separator package enabled Scottish Water Solutions to provide high-performance water treatment in a compact footprint.

Situation

Meeting growing demands for potable water in the Scottish Highlands poses a challenge for water engineers. The water is frequently extracted from the local watercourse with consequent wide variation in initial quality.

Problem

A new treatment plant established at Ballater to meet the needs of a growing population was drawing raw water from the River Gairns, a tributary of the Dee, which as a rain-fed spate river, is subject to wide variations in quality and flow.

Solution

Scottish Water Solutions evaluated a range of technologies and selected a DynaSand® filter and Lamella® separator package.

Outcome

The DynaSand® filter and Lamella® separator package enabled Scottish Water Solutions to provide high-performance treatment in a compact footprint.

"We selected the DynaSand® and Lamella® package from Hydro International because it combined proven performance with cost-effectiveness and a small footprint which suited the chosen treatment plant site."
