Recent changes in legislation from the Environment Agency has put obligations on businesses and householders who discharge foul and surface water other than to Utility Providers. This includes any registration of septic tanks or treatment tanks, ensuring that tanks are maintained.
Many existing systems will be sufficient to meet EA requirements depending on whether they discharge to a water course or ground water. This will depend on the condition, capacity and maintenance of the apparatus.
Some systems may be underperforming and causing nuisance through, smells, damp settlement and the attraction of flies or vermin.
When we know the individual requirements such as what quantity and quality (chemical and biological) checked against percolation requirements we can advise and implement cost effective schemes that will meet the requirements. We can ensure that any system has the requisite certificate of conformity and meets Building Control approval.
