The main reason for a grease separator is that if grease increases in pipework, eventually blockages and backup will occur.
These problems can then spread into sewage treatment systems, resulting in the grease interfering with the chemicals that clean wastewater. These overflows can potentially result in damage to property and/or environmental contamination of local bodies of water.
Grease can adversely impact a sewage treatment plants ability to effectively treat the wastewater it receives.
The end result will cost time and money, as well as unnecessary inconvenience for individuals.
The adopting authority (County Council or a local water company) will decide on the requirements with relation to the design, construction, operation and maintenance of the system (These vary depending on the region).
When designing the system, the system must be compliant with the local water company or County Council standards and specification.
Viltra can design and custom build wastewater treatment systems to meet county council and local water company’s high specification and standards. Once the wastewater treatment system is adopted this will disregard the developers' responsibility for future maintenance and running costs.
