“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.”
He told how there were a number of sewage treatment works across Scotland that occasionally require additional treatment to polish final effluent and assist with BOD compliance.

“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 was inspired and is exactly the kind of sustainability initiative we expect from our supply chain partners.”
Paul Currie Managing Director of The Lakes Distillery
“Our distillery is building a reputation as one of the greenest in the world, so it was important for every part of our renovation and building work to be carried out to the highest possible environmental standards.
“The Lakes Distillery is in one of the most beautiful regions of England and we want to ensure that all aspects of our business have as little impact as possible on landscape of the Lake District National Park. We are delighted with the work done by Border Water Technologies and WPL to ensure our onsite wastewater treatment is both as discreet and as environmentally friendly as possible.”

“WPL were able to install the modular units over a weekend – which enabled us to finish the work ahead of schedule. The client, United Utilities, chose the ST1000 modules manufactured by WPL because they wanted units that could be moved from site to site after the Huyton project was completed.

Jitka Bockova Mayor of Dřínov
“Improving the quality of the environment and surface waters for the Dřínov community was a priority for me when I took office and better management of wastewater plays a major role.
“EU regulations like the Water Framework Directive are an important driver for raising environmental standards and can help smaller villages access funding. Municipalities need technologies that provide robust treatment and are simple to install and operate, which is why I was impressed with WPL’s HiPAF®.
