In the last 25-30 years constructed wetland systems have gained in popularity and recognition and are being used increasingly to treat a huge range of wastewaters – from domestic sewage to the much stronger agricultural and industrial effluents – all to very high standards, and often where package treatment plants are incapable of producing a clean enough discharge.

We are not, however, committed exclusively to the use of reed-bed systems. Where appropriate or where space constraints prevent the use of a fully developed constructed wetland system, we will utilise modern technology and recommend the use of a suitable package mechanical treatment plant often in conjunction with reed-beds, or ponds, or both.

We design and install constructed wetland systems that keep the process pathways simple, are cost- effective, have low maintenance and operational costs, and have a long lifetime value.

“Water in the environment is like blood in the body: and ours is sick. The arteries and veins of our countryside, its rivers and wetlands, are suffering from the equivalent of low blood pressure and blood poisoning. The condition has developed over many years and treatment is now urgent”
Sir David Attenborough
