The beauty of these systems are they are tailored to capacity however can be easily expanded or downsized if changes to capacity of inflow changes.

We are one of only 50 trained Australian distributors who market the Taylex products.

Monitoring and Maintenence

All treated effluent released from the facilities can; be monitored at the frequency and for the parameters specified in table above, will not exceed sewerage effluent release limits, will not cause spray drift or over spray to any sensitive or commercial place and only be discharged from an authorised location with careful attention to the release of treated effluent from the site so as to not enter the bed and banks of any waters.

Our experienced and qualified staff can also undertake the daily operation of the sewerage treatment plant via pollution control equipment, technological apparatus, and specialised laboratory analysis. Pipelines and fittings associated with the sewage treatment system will be clearly identified as is raw and potable water lines.

Reporting & Data Management

Once the system is achieving desirable results as per the release limits mentioned in table C11 a full review will be conducted as part of our service contract to ensure frequency of monitoring and testing is in line with specified Environmental Licence water quality outcomes.
