Successful EPA-Trinity Evaluation of Ashtecs Drip & LPP Systems

EPA-funded research project by Trinity College Dublin has recommended introducing Drip Distribution and LPP Distribution into EPA Code of Practice (2009), prompting the current revision of the COP.

Ashtecs designed and supplied the Drip Distribution and LPP systems for the research into wastewater disposal solutions for sites with low permeability soils throughout Ireland.

Both systems performed well and the Drip system performed particularly well. The report concluded “This resulted in a decrease in the faecal contamination of groundwater, as well as the prevention of surface ponding of effluent, at both sites”.
