The Addition of Phosphate Dosing to Dwr Cymru Welsh Water zone B10

Dwr Cymru Welsh Water (DCWW) have an undertaking to introduce phosphate dosing within their B10 (Anglesey) water network.

CIV Mappin

This provides an opportunity to investigate how the addition of phosphate can impact the microbial community and subsequent water quality interactions. The project will also benefit with support from the PODDS project that will investigate the impact of phosphate dosing on discolouration risk. This project therefore offers multiple mutual benefits to both parties investigating the poorly understood impact of phosphate dosing.
