Some Structural Work in Connection With the Swansea Main Drainage Scheme

The Swansea Main Drainage Scheme, of which the major portion was carried out between the years 1922 and 1938 at a total cost of some 13 million pounds, called for a considerable amount of structural work, including the screening house near the main outlet and seven pumping stations, besides the settling tanks, etc., dealing with the effluent from the north-west districts of the Borough. These districts are, for reason of economy of construction, sewered to the estuary north of Swansea, while the sewage from the remaining districts is collected ,by an 11 miles long main trunk sewer, discharging into the Bristol Channel at a point on the west side of Swansea Bay.
