Ruševec - Family Vacation Pohorje


Constructed Wetland

Constructed Wetland imitates self-cleaning capacity of aquatic ecosystems and compost beds through gravel and microorganism development (primary) and bog vegetation (secondary). Physical and bio-chemical processes enable effective cleaning of organic, nitric and phosphoric compounds, heavy metals and other poisonous substances in secondary and tertiary cleaning.

Plant function:

  • Plant gets partly cleaned effluent and waste water from sedimentation basins where the mechanical waste water pretreatment takes place.
  • Usually, the Plant consists of two beds, treatment and polishing bed that can be constructed according to the ground and environment. If needed, third bed that collects the sediment from the sedimentation basin can be incorporated.
  • Plant beds are constructed as shallow waterproof pools, protected by a PH-DE foil and filled with substratum ‒ usually a mix of different kinds of gravel. There are microorganisms and bog vegetation: reed, iris, sedge and other plants that like moisture.
  • Basic processes that take place in the Plant are: adsorption, mineralization, aerobic and anaerobic decomposition. Cleanining is mostly carried out by the aerobic and anaerobic bacteria that live on or among roots (80 %), 20 % is done by the plants that absorb mineral substances (for ex. phosphates, nitrates) and poisonous substances.

  • Waste water that flows into the Plant is cleaned by the microorganisms and plants. Larger particles that plants and microorganisms cannot use as food, settle on the bottom of the Plant. Water flows vertically or horizontally through the system, depending on the ground and the Plant construction. Due to natural water flow under the substratum insects do not develop and the water does not smell.
  • Outflow runs to the nearby underground stream or is situated as an ornamental pond where fish and plants that like moisture (water lilies) live. The best way is to gather the clean water and reuse it ‒ for watering flowers, fire fighting etc.
  • There are almost no running costs since no energy and mechanical equipment are needed in order for the Constructed Wetland to function.
  • Space needed for the Plant is determined on the basis of the waste water amount per person ‒ 2,5 m2/person..
  • Constructed Wetland is used for cleaning of:
    - Unicipal waste waters (settlements, tourist tourist residences, natural parks);
    - Process water;
    - Leachate;
    - Urban drainage, roadway runoff;

The Boutique Wellness Ruševec is really something, the real experience. Body treatments are superb ‒ they include all branches of wellness. We recommend it to all who are looking for a place to relax.


Pohorje and the Villa Ruševec surrounding is a perfect location for hikers and bikers. It’s very peaceful, there are many well-marked paths and routes of all levels of difficulty.


The Villa Ruševec is situated in a very quiet, full-of-hills location of Pohorje. We recommend it to all who are seeking to be in touch with wonderful nature.


The surrounding of the Villa Ruševec is wonderful and the Villa is clean and nice. We were very satisfied with the additional offers. A ski centre is only 2 km away and after skiing the Ruševec is a perfect peaceful shelter.


Thank you for a wonderful family relaxation in your apartment. I recommend the Villa Ruševec to all. My children enjoyed it very much. Ruško the Black Grouse rules.
