UK Nuclear Project Wastewater Treatment Plant Begins Operations

 UK Nuclear Project Wastewater Treatment Plant Begins Operations

A wastewater treatment facility at a nuclear project site in the U.K. started operations, moving the project forward.
 
The wastewater treatment facility, in operation since earlier this month, is the first operational facility to come online at NuGen’s Moorside site in West Cumbria. It will help to discharge groundwater from drilling operations and site characterization activities.
 
Onshore investigation work has been ongoing since December and is already more than 10 percent complete. Site characterization work continues with the design and layout of the plant to support licensing, planning applications and other required consents to build the planned nuclear plant. Over 2 km of samples have been taken for analysis, and 55 out of 350 boreholes are completed.
