Site Description

This site is located in South East Germany, in the Altmültahl Natural Park. This is a sensitive recieving enviroment since the karst geology of the area means that there is very little natural protection of the groundwater below. Hence the local council regulations demand a very high effluent quality from wastewater treatment systems.
The site contains two accommodation buildings for disabled people. There are 25 live in patients and 14 nursing staff.
