The brief

Civilistix Consulting Engineers were appointed to prepare a detailed surface and foul water drainage package for a large and prestigious residential property, 1700m2 in footprint area within Essex

What we did

The site was located near an Environment Agency (EA) main river which though correspondence with the EA, we agreed a free-flow surface water connection to. This meant no attenuation storage was required, leading to a simple, less costly surface water system.

Given the site was not located within vicinity of a public foul water sewer, our design utilised a foul water treatment station, which discharged into the nearby main river, agreed with the EA. Given the levels of the site, it was not possible to discharge foul flows fully via gravity and we therefore prepared design of a pumping station as part of our scope
