New report about on-site wastewater treatment

Published: 22 May 2017

This report summarises the results from the projects "Phosphorus filters for on-site wastewater treatment - how long do they work?" (1236-15) and "Discharge of bacteria from on-site wastewater treatment units" (1240-15) that were funded by the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management (fund 1:12).

The aim with this study was to investigate the capacity of sand filters and phosphorus filters to reduce the concentration of indicator bacteria and phosphorus in the wastewater. The report (in Swedish) can be downloaded here.
