Sewer flooding at Ogmore Vale in South Wales is shortly to become a thing of the past due to a £600,000 sewerage system improvement by Morrison/Dwr Cymru (Welsh Water). Excess storm runoff and untreated sewage will soon be directed to a new 650m 3capacity attenuation tank and combined sewer outfall under construction in the region. The attenuation tank will act as a buffer to excess flow, storing wastewater and later gradually releasing it back into the system in a controlled manner.
