Shaw Forest Park Landfill Site Wetland Treatment System
Swindon Borough Council
A multi-cell design was required to overcome site constraints, which included a high voltage electricity cable and sewer running through the centre of the site. A settlement pond, wet grassland (for ammonia removal) and a series of different plant communities were incorporated to maximise treatment and attenuate stormwater. A wildlife pond provides final polishing and added biodiversity value to the treatment system.
The design also had to incorporate public access to the site. A community pond at the outfall was included and will be planted and maintained by local community groups.
