This course explores the technicalities, design and implementation of reedbeds and alternative waste water treatment systems at a domestic level. You’ll learn about the various options for low impact sewage treatment systems and nutrient recovery. There will be a session on water efficient devices. There will also be a tour of the various systems here at CAT, and an explanation of the main design features.
We will also cover some unique and bespoke alternatives.

Topics covered include:

  • Primary, secondary and tertiary treatment
  • Types of systems including reedbeds, constructed wetlands, trench arches, aquatrons and greywater treatment
  • Biological processes
  • Main design aspects and maintenance requirements
  • Location, regulations and planning

Participants will understand the theory and practical application of various types of alternative waste water treatment systems in the UK, the main design features and the most appropriate application. 

You can also stay with us B&B (£40), half board (£50) or full board (£56). Call us for more details and to book to suit your travel plans.
