Wendage was asked to provide a turnkey solution for a sensitive site owned by Saviour Inns.
The site was a former mansion house set in council-owned listed gardens overlooking the sea. A new travel lodge was under construction and the existing cesspit for the mansion house was overloaded.
The plant loading was equivalent to a population of 70. Due to the sensitivity of the site Wendage had to design, supply and install a system that would meet the required Environment Agency standard of 20mg/l BOD, 15 mg/l suspended solids and 5mg/l ammonical nitrogen.
Working with Worthing Borough Council's Arboricultural Officer, the installation had to be planned so as not to damage any trees or their roots. Trial holes had to be dug before any installation could take place, with both the Environment Agency and the Borough Council in attendance.
Wendage installed a HiPAF HP70 FS with a compact tertiary sand filter which acts as a final stage treatment process to remove a minimum 60% suspended solids and 40% biological oxygen demand.
The treated effluent then flows through a sample chamber to precast perforated concrete soakage rings beneath the car park.
A Grease Guzzler was installed into the tea rooms to treat the build up of fats and oils from the kitchen. Wendage services and empties the unit.
