The types of treatment facility available can range from cesspools and septic tanks, to treatment constructed or assembled on site.
With so many options available, choosing the right one is important and should be done with the help of a wastewater professional. An experienced independent consultant with a wide knowledge of wastewater, and the processes required to treat them is the obvious choice.
FML can provide a complete consultancy service for new wastewater treatment plants, or the refurbishment of existing ones, ranging from a single domestic dwelling, to larger more extensive developments and commercial sites.
The Environmental Agency and Water Companies have strict controls on the quantity and quality of the wastewater being discharged into watercourses or public sewers. Legislation supports them. On site treatment is used to make wasterwater suitable for discharge, and the extent to which the wastewater is treated can determine its disposal route. A number of systems are available, including:
Constructed wetlands (reed beds) represent a cost effective, low energy and robust means of wastewater treatment, and provides an effective method of dealing with effluent arising from:
water companies, farms, private estates, hotels, caravan sites, schools.
In addition, reed beds have proved to be a sustainable, reliable and economical method of treatment, whilst at the same time providing a very aesthetically pleasing solution, supporting environmental aspects and creating a new and natural habitat for species and wildlife.
Future Management Limited can offer a complete installation service from initial site survey, to landscaping and maintenance.
Package treatment plants consist of prefabricated systems used for treating crude or primary treated sewage and can be quickly installed with minimal site work, using various processes.

Any discharge from a wastewater plant, whether to surface water, such as rivers, streams, canals, the sea, or into ground water, is likely to require a Consent to Discharge from the Environment Agency.
