Choosing Ecological Sewage Treatment

Nick Grant, Mark Moodie, Chris Weedon

Choosing Ecological Sewage Treatment describes several off-mains sewage treatment systems and shows you how to deal safely with the sewage of up to about 50 people.

  • Understand nutrient recycling and the 'big circle' of sewage.
  • Find out which system is right for your situation: includes reed beds, septic tanks, cesspools and leach fields.
  • Learn how to separate, collect and use urine and the water from your kitchen and bathroom. 
  • Become water wise and cut down on waste.

Experienced practitioners Grant, Moodie and Weedon give a thorough tour of the subject, provide the most up-to-date advice regarding sewage regulations and illustrate their subject with case studies of systems they have installed themselves.

This is a fully revised new edition of the previous CAT title Sewage Solutions.

"Choosing Ecological Sewage Treatment turns out to be packed with detailed information on practical ways to make the most of being off-mains, rather than concentrating on the problems. [...] Written with both authority and humour, the authors demystify a subject most people have never even had to consider."
