School Wastewater Treatment

Biocell Water are the market leaders and suppliers of school wastewater treatment systems and installation. We design versatile school sewage solutions specifically for education projects and similar applications within the educational sector. Due to their flexibility, Biocell school sewage systems are ideal for the following typical applications:

  • Primary school wastewater treatment
  • Secondary school wastewater treatment
  • Creche and playschool wastewater treatment
  • Boarding school sewage treatment
  • College wastewater treatment
  • Training camp wastewater treatment
  • Summer camp sewage treatment

SBR wastewater treatment

Biocell Water commercial school wastewater treatment systems are bespoke solutions. We manufacture and base each design on the characteristic wastewater type, in this case, specific to school sewage and wastewater. You will need to consider a new school wastewater treatment system for any rural area school building project. This is because in rural areas there is no public sewer for the school sewage to discharge to. In these situations an off mains drainage solution is the only acceptable form of wastewater treatment. For existing schools, older septic tank systems will need upgrading in the event of a new school extension. This is to cater for increased hydraulic and organic loadings resulting from the additional students and pupils. If an existing plastic or GRP school septic tank is structurally failing, that school will need a septic tank upgrade or a new school sewage system.

Typical School Wastewater Conditions

School wastewater treatment plant project design requires professional input in its early stages. Unlike many normal applications, a school sewage system needs to deal well with the following unique conditions;

  • No loading to plant between late afternoon and morning
  • Little to no use during the summer months
  • Regular short periods with no loading
  • High effluent standards due to sensitive locations
  • Low maintenance requirements as no-onsite staff all year
  • Small footprint due to site restrictions
  • Rapid start up at beginning of school term
  • Automatic operation – as no specialist staff onsite

Why Choose Biocell Water?

A number of key factors need careful consideration with a wastewater treatment system for a school, creche, nursery or playschool. In fact, when choosing any commercial off mains drainage solution, remember to take the following into account;

  • Plant guarantee and warranty
  • Safety
  • Power consumption
  • Operation and maintenance costs
  • High ammonia content

We design all Biocell wastewater treatment plants with these important sewage treatment specifics in mind. This way, we ensure the wastewater treatment solution you get will be perfect for your education sector project. Plus, we have extensive and relevant commercial sewage treatment experience. Visit our case studies page to see examples of our wastewater treatment plants in the education sector.

Guarantee and Warranty

If you are investing in a wastewater treatment plant, the sewage treatment system guarantee is of major importance. Biocell commercial concrete packaged sewage treatment plants come with a 40 year structural warranty and guarantee. No other system manufacturer offers an equivalent warranty. In contrast, plastic and GRP septic tank manufacturers only offer a 10-15 year guarantee. Plus, it is only valid with specialist installation techniques: an additional expense for the client. Schools are run on tight budgets, so having to replace a plastic system after 1o years is simply not an option.

Biocell Water are the only manufacturer offering a guarantee that our wastewater treatment plants will not need replacing or removal after 10-15 years due to structural failure or deformation.

School Wastewater Treatment Plant Safety Features

All commercial school wastewater treatment plants come with a range of safety features as standard. School commercial sewage treatment plants and commercial school septic systems come with a range of extra safety features. This prevents any access to the tank or damage arising from persistent tampering, which is a risk in a school environment. We can install our sewage treatment solutions both above ground or below ground. Some of the safety features we offer include the following;

  • Reinforced tank lids
  • Cast iron manhole covers and frames
  • Manhole cover locking bolts
  • Manhole safety screens
  • Vandal proof enclosures for controls
  • Lockable kiosks
  • Activated carbon odour control
  • Non slip surfaces

School Wastewater Treatment Plant Operation Costs

The long term operation and maintenance costs of a Biocell school packaged sewage treatment plant is minimal. All of our school septic systems utilize cutting edge SBR technology. Unlike other packaged plants that constantly use energy, our plants run in cycles, taking advantage of specific cycle times based on school class times and pupil numbers. As a result, our waste water treatment plants use approximately 60% less electricity than standard aeration plants and disc type plants.

In addition to this, Biocell systems operate completely automatically. A secure, watertight kiosk above ground holds all components. Plus, there is no need for specialist confined space access for any maintenance of the plant. All components including air compressors and control panels are also interchangeable with any other brand of equipment. So local maintenance companies can easily maintain our solutions. For simple, low cost wastewater treatment plant operation and maintenance, a Biocell school wastewater treatment plant is the natural choice.

School Wastewater Characteristics

Unlike a typical domestic house, a school does not produce the same type of wastewater. We generally characterize school wastewater by a large number of toilet flushes. This frequent toilet flushing results in very high ammonia concentrations present in the wastewater. High organic loadings are also common. To treat this higher strength wastewater, increased aeration can be necessary, along with aeration systems and diffusers with high oxygen transfer efficiency.

However, old school septic systems can often be a source of pollution to groundwater and surface water. Upgrading a school septic tank can also necessitate meeting stringent new EPA and Environment Agency standards and discharge licenses. These new standards require the incorporation of denitrification, phosphorous elimination and ultra violet treatment into any wastewater treatment system design. Biocell Waters extensive experience in this sector can provide the best school wastewater treatment system for your project..

Our range of non electric school wastewater treatment plants are also an alternative solution to standard electric systems. Our SBR kits also offer a method of upgrading an existing septic tank to a fully functioning sewage treatment plant.
