Sewage Treatment

Sewage Treatment in France

In the UK, even many rural areas are connected to the mains sewage system which takes away all household waste water.

The chances are if you have a property in a rural area in France it will not be connected to the mains sewage system. If you're lucky you'll have a fully compliant system installed....but many renovating or redeveloping property are not so lucky. Traditionally that meant the world of the "fosse septique" or septic tank.

  • A typical septic tank installation can cost over £6500 and can cause a huge amount of disruption - not to mention the space it occupies.
