Water Recycling as part of the Treatment Train for the Sustainable Environmental Management of STEDS

Publication Date: 27/09/2012
Author: Jim Kelly, Jia Wen and Dean Lanyon

This paper was presented at the AWA Small Water and Wastewater Systems National Conference 2012 by Jim Kelly. This study examines the beneficial use of water recycled from treated effluent for the irrigation of agricultural crops. It focuses on the South Australian township of Donovans and looks at soil, water and nutrient dynamics along with an environmental risk assessment. The conclusion supports the use of recycled water for irrigation.

Energy and Carbon Footprint: A comparison of Non-Potable Water and Wastewater Servicing Approaches

Publication Date: 27/09/2012
Author: Django Seccombe, Matthew Ferguson, Andrew Bovis

This paper was presented at the AWA Small Water and Wastewater Systems National Conference 2012 by Django Seccombe. The paper analyses the relative energy and carbon impacts of four water and wastewater servicing approaches, thereby giving a greater understanding of the energy use and carbon footprint of the various approaches.

Comparison of Decentralised and Centralised Wastewater Servicing Approaches: Park Orchard Case Study

Publication Date: 27/09/2012
Author: Ben Asquith, Joshua Eggleton, Glenn Wilson

This paper was presented at the AWA Small Water and Wastewater Systems National Conference 2012 by Ben Asquith. The case study (Park Orchards) looka at the development, testing and life cycle cost analysis of alternative long-term wastewater servicing strategies. The study identified that the implementation of a series of practicable upgrades to existing on-site systems has the potential to achieve significant improvement in health and ecosystem protection.

Constant Waterlevel SBR

Publication Date: 27/09/2012
Author: Werner Gebauer, Axel Dederichs, Dr. Tim Kockritz

This paper was presented at the AWA Small Water and Wastewater Systems National Conference 2012 by Werner Gebauer. SBR (sequential batch reactor technology) is widely applied in New Zealand and other countries as a modern wastewater treatment process. The more reliable SBR plants are capable of covering a wider range of dynamic wastewater discharges. This paper discusses the merits of an innovative SBR technology.

The Need for a Holistic On-site Wastewater Land Capability Assessment Methodology

Publication Date: 27/09/2012
Author: Robert van de Graaff, Ian Allan and Helena Woolums

This paper was presented at the AWA Small Water and Wastewater Systems National Conference 2012 by Robert van de Graaff. It explores the evolution of Wastewater Codes of Practice in Australia and the limitations of using them without due consideration of local and site-specific factors.
