Rural winery upgrades treatment system to host weddings

Problem: A winery and wedding venue at a turn-of-the-century farm located in Loudoun County, Virginia, needed to upgrade its wastewater treatment system to meet expansion needs and protecting the pristine surroundings.

Solution: The owners and engineers chose the EZ Treat system that consists of a primary, flow equalization, recirculation and pump tank with two EZ 2L recirculating synthetic media filters producing outstanding effluent quality over the long term. The owner of the winery landscaped around the EZ Treat 2L modules, multiple tank access points and the control panel.

Result: The average effluent BOD and TSS are typically less than 10 mg/L. The 1,000 gpd design system allows the business to be open year-round, and seats 40 inside the winery, with outside seating for more than 50 people. For weddings, the venue serves up to 200 people. The effluent is so clean the pump is clearly visible. 703-753-4770;
