7. Sewerage Scheme Appraisal
Themes: Knowledge; Ecology and biodiversity
- Identify specific problems facing the catchment
- Improve water quality
This project aims to appraise the benefits of a new sewerage scheme to replace the existing cess pits.
The existing arrangements for sewage treatment in the upper Ash (cess pits) are unsatisfactory and can lead to overflow and pollution of the river. This project will conduct an assessment of the practicalities and financial implications of replacing the cess pits with an integrated sewerage treatment system.
