Decentralized solutions for any site
New developments and existing communities have unique servicing challenges. Clearford One is a complete decentralized solution with the flexibility to meet the water infrastructure servicing needs of any site.
More efficient and sustainable wastewater management
Clearford One is a modular communal sewage system that optimizes collection and treatment for more efficient wastewater management and sustainable water services using Clearford’s full suite of wastewater technologies.
The Advantages of Small Bore Sewer Technology
The Clearford One difference is Small Bore Sewer (SBS) technology, which enables more flexible installation, a smaller environmental footprint, and lower lifecycle costs than conventional “big pipe” sewer and treatment systems.
Why Clearford One?
- Cost Effective
- Low Impact
- Complete Solution
Unconstrained by minimum flows and easily expandable
Flexibility to build the sanitary system that fits your project
Infrastructure that saves on construction and operating costs
Enabling big resource recovery potential in a small footprint
Fully integrated wastewater systems for communities
How It Works
Clearford One is an effective three-stage wastewater servicing solution, whereas conventional systems use only two parts for collection and treatment of wastewater. The key to Clearford One efficiencies is the on-site pre-treatment stage, called ClearDigest. The pre-treated effluent is then collected and treated in the optimized ClearConvey and ClearRecover stages.
ClearDigest removes solids at the source, performing primary and partial secondary treatment before releasing liquid effluent to the ClearConvey pipe network. Solids are digested to greatly reduce the volume of organic material and hydraulic loading. ClearDigest is only pumped out after decades of normal use.
ClearConvey is a network of Small Bore Sewer pipes that carries liquids without any infiltration to an optimized facility for final treatment. Reduced contaminants in the liquid effluent allow for more efficient recovery of clean water using the ClearRecover treatment package
ClearRecover is a treatment facility right-sized to match the reduced hydraulic loading and effluent characteristics from ClearDigest. It can take different forms depending on local conditions and project requirements, ranging from membrane bioreactor to constructed wetland.
The Clearford One Advantage
This complete servicing solution is fully engineered to your site conditions for low impact installation and sustainable operation.
- Modular and scalable from small to large developments
- Water service enabling for decentralized and remote sites
- Requiring minimal resources for maintenance over 90-year life cycle
- New developments, including phased residential and mixed land use
- Resorts and recreational sites
- Retrofits for existing unserviced communities and facilities
- Collection systems connecting to existing sewers with limited capacity
- Collection systems for decentralized wastewater treatment
- Areas with challenging topographic and hydrogeological conditions
- Rural and remote areas that may lack reliable water and power supply
- Low water use communities
Bosques Granada & Cayundá is a rural residential development of 115 homes and community amenities located in a mountainous area 25 km outside of Bogotá, Colombia. The main objective of the project was to create an integrated site servicing plan that minimizes the environmental footprint of the development and preserves the high altitude forest and natural features of the site. Clearford delivered a complete water solution centred around the Clearford One wastewater system with complementary water systems for drinking water, stormwater management and the beneficial reuse of treated wastewater, achieved with a low cost constructed wetland that can be expanded in stages as more homes are constructed.
