Eco-Sewage Treatment Plant, Planted Reed Filtration Beds in Chauvry (95) - France

Client : Syndicat intercommunal d’assainissement de la région d’Enghien-les-Bains SIARE

Location : Chauvry (95), France

Project : Landscape transformation of an old agricultural area into a sewage treatment plant

Mission : Design Architect and Landscaper


Area : Site: 11834 m², Building: 36 m²

Cost : 900 000 €

Date : Technical Design studies in progress

The objective of the project is an eco-sewage treatment plant composed by planted reeds filtration beds, with a rustic technical building of 36m² inspired by the local architecture (simple shape, gable roof, natural stone cladding, light colors). The project is composed by two basins excavateds ponds and planteds ponds with reeds and other local water plants.

The location of the eco-sewage treatment plant is justified by its proximity to houses as well as its closeness to the watercourse that allows the outflow of the depollueted water treatment plant.

We promote sustainable techniques that minimize their impact on the environment:

  • Conservation of existing trees
  • Small construction of a technical building
  • Low impact operating costs: planted reed filtration beds
