What is a treatment plant?
Sewage treatment plants provide buildings and dwellings, that don’t have access to the mains sewer system, with a way to process their wastewater. Although similar to a septic tank, a treatment is slightly different in that the discharge is cleaner, and in some circumstances, can be discharged into water courses.

Understand the regulations
All sewage treatment plant systems must meet general binding rules. Before you can install a sewage treatment plant, it’s vital to get a handle on the various permissions you’ll need to obtain and regulations you’ll have to adhere to before, during and after the installation process.
You may need planning permission and/or building regulations approval, you’ll need to make sure you’re aware of how much sewage your sewage treatment plant is likely to discharge, where the treated wastewater will be released – whether this is to the ground or to a body of water – and find out whether your property is in a protected zone. Depending on your expected discharge rate, you may be required to pay a fee to apply for a specific permit.
How does a sewage treatment plant work?
Sewage treatment plants perform a very similar function to a septic tank. However, instead of just separating the sludge and scum from the wastewater, a sewage treatment plant uses a pump to aerate the chamber. This aeration process encourages the growth of ‘good’ bacteria that help to breakdown the harmful bacteria that is present in the wastewater. Once this process has been completed, the liquid water can be released from the treatment plant directly into water courses, such as streams. Whereas septic tanks can only be discharged into a drainage field.
