Space Requirements
Wastewater treatment systems need various land area starting from 1,15 meter square side length to the exeeding of 50 meters. Dimensions vary on different technology and capacity. Read more about space requirements.
Lifespan of Technology
Modern wastewater treatment technology lifespan varies mostly around 25-35 years. Some systems may work even longer, but their effectiveness diminishes gradually over time. Read more about effective lifespan.
Overall Costs Compared
To compare cost effectiveness of different equipment better, initial installation and usage are summed and expressed as daily costs, based on expected usage years. Read more about wastewater treatment costs.

VillageWaters Project
VillageWaters suggest most effective wastewater treatment solutions in scattered dwellings households, which use their own, independently operated water purification systems.

Helping Homeowners
Environmentally oriented families and homeowners, who live in scattered dwellings areas, where connecting to larger wastewater plants is not option because rural distances.
