Sewage Treatment Plants
If your property doesn’t have access to mains sewer systems you will need to dispose of your wastewater in another way. One solution is to use a septic tank to store your wastewater and then have it emptied periodically. Although this works well for some people, others prefer a more convenient solution that doesn’t rely on a third-party to dispose of their waste. This is where sewage treatment plants come in. A sewage treatment plant is an all in one solution for disposing of your wastewater. The treatment plant is made up of two chambers and works in a 3 stage process. In the first chamber, the wastewater is separated into sludge (solids), scum (fats & oils) and water. The water then passes into the second chamber, where a pump aerates it to encourage the growth of good bacteria that will break down the harmful bacteria. Once this process is complete the water can then be released into a drain away, or directly into a watercourse. More information on sewage treatment plants and how they differ from septic tanks is available in our blog post.
If you would like to explore your sewage treatment options, contact the team at Pumping Solutions. We’re more than happy to visit your property to perform a survey and advise you as to how best to deal with your wastewater. We can also advise you on any planning and permit requirements that may apply to ensure you meet Environmental Agency standards.
Sewage Pumping Stations
Regular sewer networks rely on gravity to transport wastewater from your property to your nearest main sewer. If your property sits on lower ground than your nearest mains sewer, you can’t rely on gravity to transport your wastewater and you will need to find an alternative way of transferring your waste water. One such solution is a sewage pumping station.
A sewage pumping station consists of a wet well which collects all of the wastewater from your property. The wastewater will collect in the well until it reaches a predetermined level at which point a pump activates. This allows you to build pressure in the pipes to push the wastewater upwards to the point where it can then use gravity to enter the main sewer. You can find out more about sewage pumping stations by reading our blog post – “What is a Sewage Pumping Station?“.
