Treorchy Comprehensive School

On October the 14th, 15th and 11th eighty Year 11 BTEC Science pupils visited the Welsh Water/Dwr Cymru sewerage works in Cilfynydd, near Pontypridd.

During the day the pupils learned how raw sewerage is cleaned and returned to local rivers. They also had information on how houses in South Wales get clean drinking water from rain water. The most exciting (and smelly!) part of the day was the guided tour of the works where pupils had the opportunity to stand above the inlet channel and look at the raw sewerage coming in.

All three days were a huge success and the tasks completed have enabled the pupils to complete their Science World of Work BTEC assignment.
