Drip Distribution Project - Latton National School, 2014

Project overview

An upgrade to an existing septic tank was essential as part of a school extension, but it was thought there was no suitable space available for an infiltration area. Ashtecs were engaged to assist with designing the solution. Ashtecs proposed putting a drip distribution system into the school playing field. The design was approved with 100% funding by the Department of Education based on the drip solution.

An upgrade from the septic tank to a secondary treatment system and mole ploughing of the dripline into the playing field was completed in November 2014. The dripline was Geoflow pressure compensating with root inhibitor and anti-microbial coating. The system has been operating perfectly since 2014 to date.
