WWT Consulting provides wetland advice to farms, schools and castles


 

Steart Marshes
Treatment System "Stearting" to function
The new Steart Marshes reserve welcomed the opening of a shiny new wetland treatment system to process the waste water from the toilet block. The system has been designed to combine a high performance vertical flow bed with a biodiverse series of surface flow wetland habitats. A willow evapotranspiration bed at the end means the system is effectively ‘zero discharge’. Learn more about our wetland treatment systems or find out about the fantastic Steart Marshes.
Boat Planter
SuDS sail into Birmingham Primary School
Before Christmas, WWT Consulting installed some rainwater planters at Redhill Primary School, Birmingham. Two of the planters were designed to look like canal boats to reflect the local history and use of the canal near the school. School ambassadors from each class helped to plant them up and learned about the importance of SuDS and water conservation. This type of SuDS provide a simple solution to reducing the amount of rainwater that goes into the sewer systems.  Guidance and information on SuDS can be found here.
Camphire Wetlands
Wetland enhancement for Whooper Swans
WWT Consulting have just finished the design of wetland habitats on 120ha of improved grassland to the northeast of Cork, Co. Waterford, following on from a previous WWT Consulting project .The site regularly registers numbers of national importance of wintering Whooper Swans, and its value as a foraging area for the species has long been recognized. We have just completed detailed designs for the proposed wetland habitats included in the scheme.
Swale
Using swales to flush out pesticides
WWT Consulting and Amec Foster Wheeler are working in partnership with Thames Water to investigate if drainage mitigation systems (swales) can reduce pesticide run-off from arable fields, and therefore protect drinking water sources from pollution. The swales have been designed by WWT Consulting to better understand whether pesticides (in particular metaldehyde) can degrade through interaction with the soil or another mechanism within the swale.  Read more about our Farm Wetland Treatment Systems services.
