Water quality discharge & flood alleviation system, Flanders Farm

 

One of the largest fruit producers in the UK needed a solution to their water quality discharge and flood water alleviation.  This system of treatment beds and water storage lagoon provided them with a quick and stream-lined solution.

The project consists of:

  • Three treatment beds for the wash water used to wash and sort the apples before packing (apples are floated in water so that washing and grading can happen at the same time)
  • Treatment of waste water from the package plant’s sewage system
  • A replacement flood lagoon to moderate the flow off the site and provide a storage facility during heavy rainfall events.

Specifically, this involved:

  • Site mobilisation
  • Changing the drainage to the existing flood lagoon
  • Excavating and lining the lagoons
  • Installing treatment cell media
  • Planting reedbeds
  • Constructing all pipework
