SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANTS
The right sewage treatment plant for your businessCivic sewage treatment works perform most of the UK’s wastewater drainage. But it is not unlikely that mains drainage sometimes inaccessible in more remote parts of the countryside, and in this case it falls to the land owner to find a different method of disposing of waste water.
Some commercial applications including industrial units, pubs, theme parks, golf clubs, visitors centres and hotels need to have installed a ‘packaged sewage treatment plant’ in order to treat the waste water. They are normally designed to treat the sewage to a high level, meaning that the ‘treated affluent’ can be sent into a natural watercourse or an underground drainage field.
Commercial sewage treatment plants characteristically comprise of primary settlement, biological treatment and final settlement zones. They treat ammonia (NH4), Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD), and Suspended Solids (SS). Sand filters can also be added onto certain systems in order to provide further treatment before discharge. The quality of effluent required is set by the Environment Agency in England and Wales, and the quality required can be different depending on the application.
Commercial catering creates large quantities of fat and grease and therefore should not be permitted to enter the sewage treatment plant. These kind of applications require an grease trap to be installed upstream of the sewage treatment plant.
