– Private Home, Dormston, near Inkberrow, Worcestershire
At this private home, where the owners do a lot of entertaining, even replacing and extending the soakaway drains failed to produce an adequate means of disposing of the septic tank effluent. The water simply wouldn’t soak away into the heavy clay soil which quickly clogged up on their almost flat site and produced a smelly boggy area.
A CRESS WATER SOLUTIONS’ three-stage flat-site reed-bed system with one vertical flow stage and two large horizontal flow reed-beds, designed for a total of 12 persons, provided an ideal solution for these wildlife and pond enthusiasts. The cleaned water from the reed-bed is used to successfully fill a large pond before it is allowed to run away to a nearby stream.
