Does anyone know what these small estate-based sewage treament plants typically cost to run? I have been told the plant here needs emptying three times a year. The development contains approximately 40 dwellings, and all residents pay a proportionate amount.
In another part of the village, houses are also connected to a similar local sewage treatment plant, yet that one is entirely run by the water company, as if one were on mains sewerage and simply paid the water and sewage bill. Perhaps it would be best if 'our' proposed management company simply transferred (sold?) the plant and the responsibility for running it to the water company?
