The Plumbing department students at CoPS recently participated in a fieldwork project at European Business Park, where they engaged in the expansion of a biological leaching field. The project was aimed at increasing the capacity of the existing system and improving the efficiency of the wastewater treatment process.

The students worked closely with their teachers and international experts at European Business Park to identify the best location for the expansion and to design a system that would integrate seamlessly with the existing leaching field. The project involved adding more perforated pipes to distribute the wastewater evenly and creating additional layers of gravel and sand to enhance the filtration process.

Once the expansion was completed, the students tested the system to ensure it was functioning properly. The biological leaching field uses natural processes to break down organic matter in the wastewater and filter out pollutants, leaving the water clean enough to be released into the environment.

The onsite work was a great opportunity for CoPS students to gain hands-on experience in the field and to contribute to the improvement of a sustainable solution for wastewater treatment. The staff at European Business Park were pleased with the quality of work and the dedication of the students, and are confident that the expanded leaching field will provide a more efficient and effective solution to their wastewater treatment needs.

We are proud of our Plumbing department students for their hard work and dedication to sustainability, and we look forward to seeing more projects like this in the future. Congratulations to everyone involved in the project!
