SOUTH West Water is inviting members of the public to join a guided tour of the new sewage treatment works serving the communities of Boscastle, Bossiney and Tintagel.

The tours — at 2pm and 3pm on Friday, November 18, — will give local residents unique behind-the-scenes access to this state-of-the-art facility.

The £11-million scheme for Boscastle, Bossiney and Tintagel includes the new treatment works at Trevalga, which was commissioned last year.

It provides preliminary and secondary level treatment. Preliminary treatment filters out solid material, such as grit from road run-off, paper and sanitary items. The liquid then passes through a secondary treatment process where naturally occurring micro-organisms break down organic material and purify the liquid.
