Klargester Sewage Treatment Plant to Service TV’s Most Famous Farm

The location for ITV’s hugely popular soap Emmerdale has had a Kingspan Klargester sewage treatment plant installed to service the expanding set and studios.
We made a number of visits to the site near Wetherby in Yorkshire to offer expert advice on their off-mains drainage requirements. The location had been serviced very successfully for many years by a Klargester Biodisc but further development of the site meant there was a need for greater treatment plant capacity.
After discussions with the architects and the site operators Rob recommended replacement of the Biodisc with a new Envirosafe HEQ sewage treatment plant, to serve the needs of 150 people, including film crew and actors.

Klargester Ezy Drain

The labour-intensive, costly and time-consuming activity of installing traditional herring-bone drainage soakaways for septic tanks and sewage treatment plants could now be a thing of the past.
Ezy-Drain, which has just been launched in the UK by Klargester, is a new type of pipe system that is lightweight, easy to use, high-performance and environmentally friendly.
The system was developed in the USA more than 20 years ago and, since then, more than 200,000 have been successfully installed across North America*.
Ezy-Drain comprises of sections of perforated plastic pipe, which are surrounded by a synthetic aggregate wrapped in polyethylene netting. Each three-metre section of pipe is joined together quite simply by the use of click-fit connectors, protected by a preformed collar.
The result is an extremely lightweight system that can be quickly installed by a single person up to four times faster than any time-honoured, gravel-based solution without the need for aggregate or specialist skills. The only manual labour involved is the backfilling of the trenches prior to operation.
The synthetic aggregate is manufactured from recycled expanded polystyrene, engineered to deliver for optimum performance while consistently retaining its form.
'There are so many advantages to using this tried-and-tested system over traditional gravel-filled soakaways that it's quite hard to know where to start,' says Kevin Roe, UK Sales Manager for Klargester.
'The storage and flow characteristics of the synthetic aggregate mean it's more effective at treating effluent and there's less chance of it getting clogged up.
'The cost of installation is also vastly reduced thanks not only to the speed of installation, but also because of the need for only one operative and minimal plant. There's no waiting around on site for a delivery of materials, and there's no issue with access for delivery lorries.
'What's more, in terms of environmental impact, the use of recycled waste materials makes Ezy-Drain a very sustainable solution.'

C & L Fabrication Matrix Sewage Treatment Plant

MATRIX sewage treatment systems are designed to optimise process efficiency, minimise running and maintenance costs and to be as simple and cost effective as possible to install.
The MATRIX sewage treatment system is designed to achieve the minimum required effluent quality standard of 20mg/litre (BOD) : 30mg/litre (SS) : 20mg/litre Ammoniacal 
The certified performance of the MATRIX system is that it produces an average final effluent quality of 11mg/litre (BOD) : 16mg/litre (SS) and 7mg/litre Ammoniacal.
This relates to an average efficiency ratio of 96.2%, better than most other manufacturers. As part of the test procedure the MATRIX system was proven to have one of the lowest operating costs.
All Matrix sewage treatment plants have a standard inlet invert depth, but in keeping with our commitment to customer satisfaction and to keep installation simple, we can manufacture matrix units to specifically meet site requirements. Integral pumped discharges can also be provided with all units, eliminating the need for additional tankage and installation costs.
All Matrix systems are complete with failure alarms as standard (as required by BSEN12566-3) and are not, as with some other companies in this industry which will usually set you back on average over £100.
The MATRIX treatment system is a three stage biological process contained within a single tank structure, based on the principles of a submerged bed reactor and designed in accordance with the requirements of BS6297. Careful configuration of the internal flowpath and the inclusion of non-mechanical recirculation systems ensures optimal process performance as demonstrated by the exceptional results obtained from the independent testing, providing complete peace of mind. There are NO electrical or mechanical components within the Matrix treatment plant thereby eliminating the need for any specialist servicing arrangements ensuring that any maintenance requirements on the MATRIX system are kept to an absolute minimum.
Benfits Of The Matrix Sewage Treatment Plant
  • Free nationwide site surveys and technical proposal with no obligation.
  • Full technical back up and customer service support.
  • Nationwide network of service engineers.
  • Supply only or full supply and installation through certified installers.

Sewage Pumping Stations

If the main sewer is accessible but at a higher level to (or some distance from) the domestic foul drain, then a domestic sewage pump set may be used to pump unsettled sewage directly to the main.
Whilst single pump units are acceptable for individual houses, it is recommended that twin pumping systems be used for multiple dwellings.
A septic tank or treatment system pump set can be used to disperse settled effluent when a site has a high water table or adverse invert levels. Installed after the septic tank or treatment system and pumping settled effluent up to an inspection chamber, flow to the drainage system then takes place by gravity in the normal way.

Surface Water Pump sets
Due to the amount of rainwater that can fall in a short time period, Surface water run-off is often the most demanding of all applications, whether hard-standing or roof areas.
We offer a comprehensive range of packaged pump systems in both standard form or manufactured to bespoke specifications. Careful calculation of the run-off areas is essential when sizing these pump systems. 

Key Points
Firstly, don’t worry too much on sizing your pump station, all we need from you is information on key factors such as:
  • Application: e.g., domestic residential /commercial
  • Sewage, effluent or surface water?
  • Inlet depth (below ground level)
  • Pumping distance and lift
  • Electrical supply
At Septic Tank Supplies we offer a range of Sewage and surface water pump stations to suit all applications from small domestic or out buildings to large commercial sites.
We supply pumping stations from the of the UK's biggest manufactures;

Simply give us a call on 01923 261660  or send us an email - with your enquiry and site information and we will be able to size the correct pump station for your application.

Harvest Rainwater to Help the Environment

Rainwater harvesting can be an incredibly good idea, especially in Britain, where we have such a changeable climate. With plenty of wet days, the opportunity of collecting water to reuse is both rewarding and cost effective. 

So why is it important that we all try and collect rain and storm water?

Let’s go back to basics - we get a lot of storm water in Britain. This can pick up rubbish, chemicals, dirt and other pollutants and flow into a storm sewer system or directly to lakes, streams, rivers, wetlands and coastal waters. Everything that enters the storm sewer system is left untreated and discharged into the water bodies we use for swimming, fishing and for drinking water.

During a period of heavy rainfall in urban areas, the surfaces of streets, pavements and roofs collect excess rainwater, causing environmental problems. The flow of water and dissolved contaminants range from chemicals applied to lawns, organic animal waste and metal waste from copper, nickel and zinc roofs and cars, which are deposited in nearby rivers and streams of water. This happens because the building materials we use in today’s society doesn't allow for storm water to permeate through the ground in built up areas.

The runoff of contaminated storm water can have many adverse effects on plants, fish, animals and people, such as:
 · Sediment can cloud the water and makes it difficult or impossible the growth of aquatic plants. Sediment can also destroy aquatic habitats.
 · Excess nutrients can cause algae blooms. When the algae die, they sink to the bottom and decompose in a process that removes oxygen from the water. Fish and other aquatic organisms cannot exist in water with low dissolved oxygen levels. 
· Bacteria and other pathogens can reach swimming areas and create health hazards, often making beach closures necessary. 
· Rubbish such as plastic bags, bottles and cigarette butts that reach water bodies can choke, suffocate or disable aquatic species like ducks, fish, turtles and birds.
· Household hazardous wastes like insecticides, pesticides, paint, solvents and other vehicle fluids can poison aquatic life. Land animals and people can become sick or die from eating diseased fish and shellfish or ingesting polluted water.
· Polluted storm water frequently affects drinking water sources. This in turn can affect human health and increase the costs of drinking water treatment.

By harvesting rainwater in water butts, we help to allay some of these effects and can also reuse this water supply as and when we need it. Not only that, but you can help the water supply in times of drought, because you would have stocked up and also save some money on your water bills too!
