Installation Of A Waste Water Treatment System For A Luxury Holiday Home Development In Dorset

News

Pollution Control have recently installed a complete above ground Eco-n-Saf modular system to treat the waste water from a new luxury sustainable home holiday village.

As the new village is in the Poole harbour catchment area it is subject to strict regulations from natural England and the environment agency regarding the export of Nitrogen compounds from the development.

The client originally looked at buried systems but after a visit to an above ground Eco-Saf installation that Pollution Control installed for the building phase of the new Carrington power plant (treating the wasterwater from up to 1000 site staff). He was sold on the benefits in both ease of maintenance of the system and the overall cost.

The bespoke design is part of a complete nutrient management plan for the site which includes solids reduction, bod reduction, lamella clarification and exceptionally high reduction of total-n and total-p.

Once the treated waste water has passed through the wetland treatment system it is expected that the waste water will be nutrient neutral.

Reputation Of Groundhog Slurry Separators To Deal With Sand Laden Slurry Grows

Pollution Control have recently installed two Groundhog seperators to add to the list of seperators that are working trouble free on sand laden slurry. They have replaced screw press type seperators (one in Dorset and one in Cheshire). The customers found that although screw presses initally worked well once they changed their bedding regime to sand excessive wear was noticeable making them an expensive machine to keep in service.

Existing support steel work was modified and both separators now require minimum maintenance.

Pollution Control have also developed a Groundhog sand washing and dewatering process to reclaim 75% – 85% of sand bedding. The equipment uses hardened steel parts to provide minimum service requirements.
