Installation of large soakaway and Klargester BioDisc BG treatment plant
North Hertfordshire Homes is a not-for-profit housing association providing quality homes across eight local authority areas in the counties of Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire. ESTS has completed a number of projects for North Herts Homes, one of which was this installation at Tea Green, Luton, Bedfordshire.
The requirement was to install a wastewater management system to service 12 new residential properties at a reasonable distance from the buildings. This led to us installing over 200m of sub-surface irrigation feeding a Klargester Biodisc BG treatment plant with twin effluent pumps, discharging into a large soakaway.
The system included a telemetric monitoring system, designed to raise the alarm if any part of the system stopped working. So far all has gone well!
