The St. Constantine Village Hotel and Suites in Gouves, Crete, had a major wastewater problem. The 101-room facility’s
aerobic treatment system had failed, and an effective alternative was needed that could fit on the resort’s
very compact site.
The hotel’s wastewater engineer, Dialynas S.A., designed a highly innovative interior system. Then a recirculation
tank was installed and a room was built above the tank to hold six AdvanTex AX100 treatment units. These units
were installed right next to guest rooms, while the septic tanks feeding the system were under the poolside
lounge. Consequently, odor control was critical. Finally, the walls and stairs were rebuilt and the resort was able
to open. Sampling has shown effluent quality of 9 mg/L BOD5 and 11 mg/L TSS.*
* Samples collected between 6-22-10 and 6-28-10.
