The design requirements for the decentralised treatment of wastewater from small towns with population equivalents (PEs) in the range 200–2,000 PE are commonly different to those encountered in the treatment of wastewater from larger conurbations. In order to develop design guidelines for small-town wastewater treatment systems, a world-class water research facility (WRF), capable of examining proprietary and novel environmental technologies, was proposed, designed, constructed, commissioned and operated by researchers in Civil Engineering, NUI Galway at Galway County Council’s Tuam Wastewater Treatment Plant (TWWTP) and is known as the NUI Galway/EPA WRF.
