Land Disposal Systems
The dispersal of treated effluent to land is the ultimate in sustainable disposal
options. If correctly designed and controlled water and nutrients in treated
effluent can be dosed to plant root zones and beneficially utilised.
Subsurface disposal through pressure compensating dripline offers the following
- The wetted volume of soil around the emitter is about 40% larger compared to surface
- It reduces the potential for human or domestic animal contact which is important
as secondary treated effluent can still have high pathogen concentrations
- The potential for odours evident in the disposal area is reduced
- The potential for UV degradation or mechanical damage is reduced
Ecogent utilise specialist pressure compensating dripline from Geoflow Inc which
is specifically designed for the subsurface disposal of treated effluent.
Domestic and small commercial wastewater projects tend to focus design efforts and
cost funding on the treatment technology often overlooking the importance
of the land disposal system - which is often the place that problems will be observed.
By combining superior products and detailed design Ecogent
can offer sustainable
land disposal solutions.
