A two-year project to improve water treatment facilities for a large part of Conwy county has begun.

Welsh Water said it is investing £31m in expanding the Bryn Cowlyd site at Dolgarrog in the Conwy Valley.

The plant will be responsible for drinking water for 100,000 people across Llandudno, Colwyn Bay and Conwy.

The project is the largest single investment in a treatment works being carried out by the not-for-profit water company.

The man running the scheme, Ron Durrans, said the investment was "essential to ensure we continue to provide customers in the area with a first class drinking water supply".
