KEE RBC replacing expired Sewage Treatment Facility under Section 101a of the Water Industry Act
The picturesque village of Walton is located within the heart of Warwickshire adjacent to the River Dene. The existing privately owned sewage treatment facility located on the bank of the River Dene was life expired and would often flood, resulting in pollution to the river. An application was made to Severn Trent under Section 101a of the Water Industry Act to provide a first-time sewage connection for all 20 properties in Walton village with a population of approximately 70 people. Due to the remote location of the village, a connection onto the existing Severn Trent sewer network, either gravity sewer or a pumped solution, was not deemed feasible. Therefore, the proposal was for the installation of a new rotating biological contactor (RBC) to replace the existing treatment facility.
KEE’s solution was to provide a gravity system which incorporated all the clients wishes for ongoing operation and maintenance with enhanced Health and Safety features all within a smaller footprint than the existing treatment works.

Flooding and saturated ground cause significant problems for sewage treatment plants and as the UK receives more frequent severe rainfall events, the issue of pollution from sewage treatment plants and septic tanks is an ever increasing threat.
What is the effect of a sewage treatment plant flooding?
The effect of a sewage treatment plant flooding is not limited to contamination. Nearly all sewage treatment plants have some form of motor or compressor which is responsible for driving the treatment process. If these flood, then they will need to be replaced once the flood waters recede.
The most common Septic tank problem that arises due to flooding is that saturated ground cannot absorb any additional water and hence many sites with drainage fields suffer during prolonged periods of rain because the sewage system backs up.
