Cesspit maintenance

February 11th, 2020

Maintaining your #cesspit is essential, not just for your household, but for your local authority too.

A common problem with #cesspits is overflowing, which can cause issues regarding cracked walls and punctures, which may lead to external leaks. Unlike #septic tanks, a cesspit has no rudimentary treatment system, which means that whatever goes in must come out. Under the #public health act and water resources act, your local council authority has a duty to ensure your cesspit is in good working order, routine inspections are commonplace throughout the UK.

Do’s and Don’t regarding #cesspit maintenance

Never lift the lid of your cesspit to check levels, inside there are a whole lot of toxic nasty’s, make sure you have an alarm system fitted within your pit.

#Cesspits are often located in areas where other #sewage solutions are just not practical. Make sure your cesspit is located at least 15 metres away from any outbuilding and not less than 10 metres from any watercourse.

Do not place heavy objects above #manhole covers.

Do not drive over any #cesspit covers, especially old brick built pits.

Hygienic drainage in Food and Beverage Industry.

February 3rd, 2020

#Drainage may not be the most exciting topic but their design and maintenance are crucial if hygiene standards are to be maintained.

No.1 priority in every food and beverage processing operation is hygiene, but all too often, focus is on the latest process equipment and on technical developments that can improve efficiency and safety.

Although these things are essential, this distraction can cause some of the more basis hygiene requirements to be overlooked, in particular the maintenance of the drainage.

#Drains are a breeding ground for pathogenic and non-pathogenic micro-organisms. These typically occur either as free form where microbes float in the drain water, or are embedded as biofilm. In each case they create the potential for transferring pathogens, including listeria monocytogenes from the drain to food products. However by establishing an efficient maintenance routine, maintenance engineers can minimise and control the risk of contamination.

#Septic tank changes

January 20th, 2020

Beginning January 1st 2020, new regulations for discharging wastewater from septic tanks have now come into force, householders and businesses that fail to take notice, risk heavy financial penalties or even criminal prosection.

The new regulations called General Binding Rules:Small sewage Discharge to the Ground, have not allowed wastewater from a standard septic tank to be discharged directly into water courses, although approved in 2015, The Environmental Agency gave until the beginning of 2020 for homeowners and businesses to upgrade their septic tanks. These changes apply to thousands of properties with off-line wastewater systems. Many will have already took the necessary steps to ensure that they are in line with new regulations.

If you want to find out more regarding the new regulations contact us on #01514951929 or contact The Environmental Agency.
