Scoala Cornerstone, Dorohoi
Dorohoi is a small town in the northeast of Romania. In Dorohoi, the society HCI (Hope for the Children International) runs a school for 200 students and a kindergarten. Three foster families, including 25 people, live there, too.
Until 2011, the sewage of the small village was treated by a sludge dewatering plant which rarely worked. Permanent defects, unobtainable spare parts and high restoration charges caused that the employer decided to replace the sewage treatment plant. He rethought and chose a near-natural clarification method: In October 2011, the constructed wetland went into operation – commissioned at a temperature of minus 30 degrees Celsius. The very first winter became the “acid test” for the new wastewater treatment plant.
On 22nd March 2012, the client sent us the following e-mail
“It’s unbelievable: The facility has survived the extremely hard winter with the temperature falling to minus 30 degrees Celsius. It still works and dabbles, and the water is as clear as drinking water.”
