Camping has a faithful fan base and is again completely in fashion – and not only just since the Corona crisis. Hardly surprising. The camper stands for freedom, independence and a comparatively inexpensive holiday. Camping is, however, at lot more. It is a feeling of being alive, which at the moment is being rediscovered by the younger generation. Those whom climate and environmental protection are more important than the long-haul flight to Australia are rewarded with a relaxed holiday on wonderful camping sites. However, as with other booms, this trend also has its downside. The environmentally sound treatment and recycling of the wastewater for instance, presents camping site operators, planning offices and installers of wastewater treatment plants with major challenges. It is now time to take a closer look at the possible solutions.
Camping in the overtaking lane

Overcrowded camping sites demand new concepts
As true East Westphalian family business we take on the responsibility – for our customers, our colleagues and the environment. This company philosophy is reflected also in our range of services. Thus we have developed branch solutions with which ATB WATER supported camping site operators, in Germany and the whole of Europe, with the planning and implementation of sustainable wastewater concepts.
Everywhere, where there are many people to be found, they leave marks – and meant here are not just the tyre tracks of caravans. It is much more about litter and wastewater. As there was hardly a single camping site operator who could reckon with the current boom, many waste and wastewater concepts were also not prepared for the rush of visitors. Wastewater volumes at campsites fluctuate extremely - daily and seasonally. So a modern solution is needed that meets the increased requirements - in terms of wastewater volume and in terms of environmentally friendly implementation. For all the different types of wastewater there are different statutory rules and regulations, which camping site operators must take into account – from water rights law over the waste management law up to commercial statutory orders.
