MAYGLOTHLING WASTE SYSTEM DESIGN CONSULTANCY SERVICES
Home Buyers Survey
The stress of purchasing a house can only really be understood by those that have been through the process. You can feel as if you need to be an expert on everything from legal matters to finance and waste management. We understand that most people have very little knowledge about sewage treatment, soil porosity or waste permits. That is why we have tailored a house buyers survey to help you through the process. Our engineers will visit the property and conduct a thorough survey of the existing system. We will be able to advise if the system is currently fit for purpose and give indicative costs to address any issues found. Getting this information from us prior to final price negotiations can save you a fortune, or give you the opportunity to walk away from a real headache.
Pre-Planning Conceptual Survey
It is increasingly beneficial to submit a conceptual drainage report with your planning applications. You can instruct Mayglothling to conduct an audit of existing assets on site. We will identify their position and expected lifespan. We will identify areas that are available for off mains treatment plants, pump stations, foul and storm water soak-aways or discharge points, subject to appropriate permissions. We work with our clients to calculate such things as the Population Equivalent flow rates for the proposed construction for both “off mains” and “mains” sewer outfall.
We can conduct the porosity tests to calculate size of soak-aways required. We can enter into discussions with the sewerage utility Company, the local Planning Authority and Environment Agency to build a drainage strategy that can be submitted at the feasibility stage. The drainage strategy will take into account current capacity of the public sewer and the topography of the land. SUDS.
Site Asset Survey
Many of our customers, Housing Associations, Councils and Private Estates own multiple sewage treatment assets. How do they know how old these assets are, what is the residual life expectancy of the plants. What will it cost to upgrade or replace these assets when they come to the end of their life. How do they plan the financial input required to maintain compliance with the final effluent quality? It is vital that these assets are maintained to a high standard as they are regularly checked by the authorities. Lack of maintenance can lead to pollution risk. A Site Asset Survey will address all of these concerns, Mayglothling will even be able to advise if additional treatment capability can be added to a sewage treatment system rather than a full replacement in those cases where additional dwellings are being added to the existing system.

Topological surveys, CCTV Surveys of your new and existing drainage systems for adoption or maintenance, from a single house to an entire estate. Using mainline CCTV equipment we can supply you with a digital survey or conduct a simple look and see fault finding survey. We will enable you to see what the issue is with your drain prior to any repair works being carried out. This saves any unnecessary excavation costs and pinpoints the location of the problem which could be drain adoption, repeat blockages or root ingress.

Cesspits & Soakaway Care
The soakaway should be checked for sogginess or ponding, which indicates improper drainage, a blocked system, or excessive water use. The presence of damp or soggy areas or odours may indicate a leak in the system. In some cases, if there is nowhere in the surrounding area to site a soakaway, it may not be possible to have a septic tank. In this case, it may be necessary to have a cesspit – a holding tank for waste with no outlet. Large volumes will need to be emptied from these at regular intervals.
Our vision is to be THE provider of sanitation for the nonurban community and manage it to the benefit of the environment.
