Treatment plant upgrade

Our client came to us with a problem with their existing pumping station. It was a very small fibreglass tank with only one operating pump, which at the time was not working. As such, they were having to have the system pumped out via tankers on a regular basis. The original enquiry was about upgrading the system with a new larger tank and two new macerator pumps.

After our site visit and checking the environment, surroundings, and property requirements, we suggested they install a new Biorock Monoblock 3 system; this is a non-mechanical system, which means it has no moving parts and no power is needed. This made most sense, because once the waste has been through this treatment process, it can be discharged into any water course – and the client had a running stream on their property. We took a 60m trench excavation through the client’s paddocks and down to the stream for the new system to discharge into.

The existing drainage also had some slight adjustments made, just to redirect the last boundary manhole into the newly installed tank. The existing pumping station – including all effluent and the pump and inner workings – was taken away and the area backfilled with a self-compacting material, after which the cover and frame was removed and block-paved to match the existing surface.
