Merlin Housing Society own and manage over 8,400 homes in the Gloucester / Bristol region, housing over 16,000 residents. 14 of the more rural properties are not on mains sewerage and have either a septic tank or sewage treatment plant.
As part of their ongoing asset review and maintenance strategy Merlin were looking for an expert to carry out a detailed inspection of all the tanks and treatment plants. As Pipefix had been on site earlier in the year installing a new sewage treatment plant at Mays Hill they asked us if our engineers could assist with this work.
We visited all of the plants over a two week period and carried out a full detailed inspection, producing a written report with photographs for each site. The engineer also put together a short list of recommendations for each site to maintain compliance with the EA Permits and to guide the next steps in terms of maintenance and repair.
