Microscreen trialled to ensure compliance at rural works
Ian Storie, asset planner wastewater, Scottish Water, said, “Operating and maintaining our wastewater treatment works to reduce the likelihood of pollution and protect the natural environment is one of our priorities. The success of this trial with WPL, especially under the challenging hot weather conditions experienced in the summer, opens up the treatment options available to help meet discharge standards at our rural sites. “In fact the trial was so successful that we have purchased the unit to make the installation permanent.”

HiPAF® tank repurposed for wastewater upgrade
Mitchells & Butlers’s area building manager, Martin Lyons said, “As a business, we manage our water, energy and waste in a way which is cost effective to the business and reduces our impact on the environment. The idea of repurposing of WPL’s HiPAF wastewater treatment plant [Toby Carvery in Stonebridge] was inspired and is exactly the kind of sustainability initiative we expect from our supply chain partners.”
Innovative installation cuts cost of Czech wastewater treatment plant
WPL HiPAF®: “By investing in more sophisticated, flexible technology for wastewater treatment, significant costs savings could be made in other areas and minimising the visual impact of the plant could be prioritised and realised. This investment helped to achieve goals shared by the community including maintaining the environmental quality standards and ensuring life continued to flourish in the stream where the effluent is emitted.”
Snails pose an unusual wastewater challenge at motorway services
WPL HiPAF®: The solids increased when the eatery opened and WPL identified the cause being snail shells being dissolved and passing straight through the screen. Analysis carried out by WPL in its technical support role identified the cleaning product in the eatery as having caused the high suspended-solids in the wastewater.
Holiday park treatment plants tackle seasonal flows
WPL HiPAF®: It’s a very unusual site. The treatment system had to be robust enough to withstand seasonal variation in flows. When the park is full in high season the rate can be as high as 99 cubic meters a day
WPL Diamond replaces septic tank unable to cope with modern living
I would just like to say what a wonderful job you did at the above property last week.

Modular treatment plants deliver flexible upgrade for United Utilities
WPL’s Hybrid-SAF™: Neil Wilkinson, Projects Manager, Nomenca said: “The modular nature of WPL’s Hybrid-SAFs gives the wastewater treatment plant managers at Sandbach and Lawton Gate flexibility in terms of operation along with the additional capacity required. They can work alongside existing process systems, so they were a good choice at these sites.”
Sewage treatment upgrade at remote historic site
WPL HiPAF®: The unique design of the WPL HiPAF Midi primary tank means it can cope with variable flows – which is essential. During the summer season, influx of visitors can bring as many as 2,000 people in a day – while the wild winter weather the site can be without a single visitor.
Discreet package treatment installed at English whisky distillery
WPL HiPAF®: It was essential that the package sewage plant chosen for the site was as unobtrusive as possible and to create the least possible disruption of the landscape. Treated water from the plant will be discharged into the River Derwent, which is a site of special scientific interest (SSSI), meaning pollutants have to be thoroughly removed from wastewater to meet statutory regulations.
