A few kind words from some of our satisfied clients throughout the Southeast of England:

testimonials ward environmental services

I was recommended to WES Ltd by Klargester as their specialist off-mains Accredited Installer for the installation of the Biodisc Sewage Treatment Plant for our development. 

They turned out to be much more than just an installer as were able to completely manage the process including the application to the Environment Agency to ensure we had the correct discharge permit and then design the installation to meet the specific criteria.  

Mark managed the whole project from start to finish of the installation and I would have no hesitation in recommending WES Ltd to anyone, its so important to get a professional company who know the rules and regulations to ensure you are fully compliant.”

Over the past week we have had a Vortex 9 Treatment plant installed by Ward Environmental Services. The two engineers Eli and Lewis were two of the best workmen that we have encountered during the 14 months of building work.

They completed every task thoroughly and with an amazing clean up process every day making sure that everything was safely stored away so that three inquisitive 10 year olds were not in any danger.
When asked if they could do just a little bit extra in tamping down the ground where needed it was always done. Everything was left landscaped better than when they started, cleaned and left in pristine condition.
If you want this type of work done then this company and their workforce are the people to go to.

Dear Mark

Many thanks for your prompt report.

Obviously it is of huge relief to us that the Septic Tank is in fact compliant as it was becoming a potential nightmare.

 As discussed, I will certainly recommend your professional, efficient and objective services to our estate agent, lawyer and friends / family who may face the same problems that we have!

Best wishes


Nick, Septic Tank Compliance Surveys


Eli and Lewis were brilliant – my brother and sister-in-law both said that they were so helpful making sure they had access and the site was left really tidy. I read quite a few of your reviews before contacting you and I can see why you and your teams have got such good feedback.

Mrs P Hayward, Bishops Waltham 

I am extremely happy with the work that was carried out and greatly appreciated everyone’s hard work in ensuring that everything ran very smoothly. The site was left in an immaculate state which I am also very grateful about.  Can you pass on my thanks to Wayne and Charles, I think they did an excellent job! 

Mrs S Mahon, Petworth

I wanted to thank you and your team for the fantastic job.  Lewis and Eli did an incredible job on the installation as well as the cleanup after and conducted themselves very professionally throughout.  Please send on my thanks to them.

Mr T Klaver, Farnham 

Dear Mark

Thank you again for helping us sort out the various waste systems for the properties at Mill Court. It is great peace of mind to have these issues resolved.

Your team on site were very helpful, knowledgeable, tidy and polite

Mrs K Thompson – Hampshire 

I want to thank you for installing the three Klargester Biodisc units for us.

I would highly recommend Ward Environmental to all friends, family and colleagues, they were professional, neat and tidy and a very competitive price. The staff were polite, efficient and most helpful and the tasks were undertaken speedily with care and attention.  Ward Environmental are one of the best contractors I have had the pleasure to work with.

Matthew Styles-West
Head Gardener, Mill Court Estate

Jan and I would like to express our appreciation of Wayne, Charles and Ricky’s good humour in difficult circumstances and the cheerful and very professional way they handled this installation of our Sewage Treatment Plant even during appalling weather conditions.

We particularly appreciated the careful way they cleaned the drive and tidied up each day.  We’d also like to thank you for the efficient way this was managed and your own professionalism and confidence-inspiring communication.”

Mr & Mrs V Brodin

Hinton Prava, Wiltshire

Dear Mark

As I mentioned on site the other day, we were so impressed with the work Wayne and Charles delivered to complete the installation (in sub zero temperatures).

We had been quite concerned about damage to the garden during the installation but they both took great care to reinstate everything and to minimise impact to the greatest degree possible. The hole for the tank Wayne dug looked like it was precision laser cut in the ground, and we couldn’t have asked for more care to be taken.

Additionally having had some other contractors quote that appeared less than confident, it was a relief to have the job completed by a team that clearly knew exactly what had to be done. So thank you very much and please pass on my thanks to Wayne and Charles again.

Mr J Strain, Salisbury, Wiltshire

Within our UK properties there a number of settings that are not connected to the mains drainage, we approached Ward Environmental Services after being recommended by a manufacturer as our requirements were non-standard.  Mark carried out the initial site visits and it quickly became clear that the previous advice we had received was not correct, nor compliant to Environment Agency legislation. 

We engaged WES to undertake a number of surveys on our properties that had private systems and they put together and completed an extensive programme of works that involved replacement systems and refurbishment of existing.  Mark acted on our behalf in dealing with the Environment Agency to ensure we remained compliant and kept the facilities operational throughout with no interruption to drainage services.

It’s not often a company deliver to such high standards but well worth mentioning when they do,  I cannot recommend WES enough to any potential client seeking a professional company in this area and we will continue to go to Mark and WES for any future off-mains drainage advice and works.

Dene Ayres, Senior Project Manager

WES Ltd undertook the installation of our new Sewage Treatment Plant in July 2020. We chose WES as the director, Mark, provided us with the simplest, least disruptive and clearest solution to our situation, while still being in the same price range of other estimates.

Mark took the whole project on for us – we didn’t have to worry about a thing! His team, Wayne and Terry, who undertook the work were brilliant – so careful when taking up plants and replanting them (all survived!), very well organised and incredibly tidy with everything neatly stored at the end of the day.

They kept us informed throughout and Mark visited regularly to oversee what was going on. We were dreading the disruption but Mark and his team made the whole process as smooth as possible. We can recommend WES Ltd without reservation.

Paula Montie – Berkshire

Mark, I’m very happy with what Wayne and Terry have done.  They have been very thorough, their workmanship is good and I felt they consulted me at the right times on some of the finer details.  They were also very neat and tidy considering what a messy job it is.  The system and new soakaway are all working well, so please thank them (I managed to thank Terry in person before they left) for a job well done on our behalf and thanks to you also for your management of it

Piers Millward – Cookham Dean, Berkshire

“Excellent allround, from initial explanation of options, planning to completion of the work. We had a domestic sewage treatment plant and distribution field installed. Special mention to the guys doing all the hard graft – Clayton, Eli & Lewis. Very tidy and left that lawn almost looking untouched. No hesitation in recommending.”

Paul Boyle – Headley, Hampshire 

Hi John
Many thanks for your report. Pleased to hear that the current septic system is compliant and in good order. Overall very happy with your service and speed of turnaround and will happily recommend.”

Dalbir – Coventry (Home Buyer Septic Tank Survey)

Dear Nick
I would like to thank you for your time spent surveying my property, taking the time to explain the process and to answer my questions. I was very impressed with your professionalism, it was very refreshing and would have no hesitation in recommending you.”

Mrs Gaynor – Canterbury (Home Buyer Septic Tank Survey)

Good Morning Mark, I would like to take this opportunity to say that we are delighted with the installation of the Apex system and now have one less thing to worry about! 

We had got to the point where we were expecting some unpleasant overflow from the old septic system and as you know it was long  overdue for replacement. 

Also, thank you for providing a very reliable and professional service. We are very satisfied with the quality and standard of the installation and will have no problem in recommending you to our associates and neighbours.

We are particularly pleased because all parties had the added constraints of the virus epidemic going on and yet you were able to complete the work in a very reasonable time frame.

Your team, Wayne and Terry, were extremely professional, considerate and courteous and at no time let us down.

They also left the site each day in a very tidy and safe state. As you know you have a couple of really good guys in those two.

Dan Hall – Basingstoke

“Mark and his team at Ward Environmental Services did a fantastic job of installing our new waste treatment system, ensuring that all the work was done with minimum disruption to us and our neighbours and on time. This again was hugely appreciated as the job was not simple and required considerable planning. Their expertise and sensitivity to our situation was hugely appreciated.

WES were brilliant – always keeping us up-to-date and informed with clear and regular communication, tidy and non-invasive and have restored our waste system and garden to its former glory!

I would definitely recommend and engage with WES for ANY drainage systems work or advice.”

Marcia & Matt

“We are very pleased with our new sewage treatment plant and drainage field, which we share with our neighbour. WES planned, installed and commissioned an innovative drainage solution on time and on budget. They coped admirably with the site’s unusual layout, complicated drainage history and access limitations.

We were impressed by their attention to detail, open communication with various interested parties (two sets of home owners, insurers and loss adjusters) but, above all, their genuine desire to deliver a drainage solution that will serve our needs for years to come. We would not hesitate to recommend Mark and his team.”

Mr. D. Naser

“Mark and his team very professionally investigated, advised and delivered exactly as promised.

As with all groundworks, this was a pretty aggressive intrusion in the garden, WES never prettied up or disguised the fact that this would be a messy job at any time. Communication always excellent, Christian and Henry are fantastic representatives for WES, always willing to go that extra mile. All areas were cleared, cleaned, re-landscaped (must say better than before) then re-seeded and now growing very nicely.

Thank you so much for all of your efforts, would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone needing this kind of service.”

Mr. S. Thompson

“Thank you for installing our joint STP efficiently and to a high standard, your help, guidance and support has been fantastic throughout with a professional team on the ground.”

Lloyd Hatton

“We recently moved into an older property and inherited a failing cesspit which was picked up on the survey.
We then spent 6 months researching the various products on the market decided to go for a sewage treatment plant.

Then we went through the process of choosing an installer. At the end of that process we asked Mark Ward from WES to quote.

In a nutshell Ward Environmental Services met our expectations, carried out the works to schedule, are clean and tidy and above all else listened to our needs.

Their customer service is excellent and I would be more than happy to recommend their services.”

Mr C Jones

“Mark, may I offer you our appreciation on the way the work has proceeded, especially with the ongoing  limited space.

We are very happy with the Waste Treatment Plant and the professional manner you conduct your business is a credit to you.

Your advice has been invaluable and just for the record Christian and Henry have been exemplary.  I will be happy to recommend you in the future should our friends require your services.”

Mr J Dixon, Storrington

“Dear Mark

Thank you to you and your team for your work and help getting this project done – it was no mean feat.
We’re really delighted by the result and glad to finally be in the 21st Century.”

Mr & Mrs A Hill, Dorking
