Wastewater consultancy services

Efficient wastewater systems are essential on public health and environmental grounds. One key problem occurs when combined sewers overflow during rainstorms. To reduce this strain on wastewater systems in populated areas, EFLA designs double systems that separate storm water from sewage. We’re also experts in sustainable drainage systems (SuDS), which control surface run-off to relieve pressure on sewers. Where reliable wastewater treatment is lacking in smaller communities and rural Iceland, we assess the system as a whole. We develop practical, cost-effective methods to boost services, ensuring a sustainable, efficient and reliable wastewater management system for these communities.
