The 25th anniversary of the Bray Keleher Water Treatment Works in Monkey Island Lane, Bray was celebrated with a visit from the Royal Borough’s mayor and mayoress.

Councillor Paul Lion and his wife Laura inspected the £22 million expansion programme which will turn the works into one of South East Water’s biggest water treatment sites.

Desmond Brown, Head of Engineering at South East Water, said: “At present, the site can treat up to 45 million litres of water every day. However, once our expansion project completes, we’ll be able to treat up to 68 million litres of fresh drinking water a day. This will allow us to pump water to 150,000 properties.”
