With a productive and thriving economy comes the need for primary industry businesses to store and dispose of effluent waste in a safe and effective way, using environmentally conscious methods that protect groundwater quality.
With our many years of experience in irrigation system design and groundwater resource management, Aqualinc are skilled at designing new effluent management systems and maximising the performance of existing systems, as well as considering the wider picture — preserving groundwater and land quality across New Zealand.
What We Do
We contribute our expertise to a range of projects that assess the wider impacts of wastewater discharges on land. We also regularly conduct feasibility studies for using land to discharge waste, and peer review proposed land treatment solutions.
Some of the important questions that we consider include:
What is a groundwater system’s capacity to safely assimilate nutrients and other contaminants?
Will a new development change groundwater quality significantly, and how could the risk of adverse effects be minimised?
How significant is the vadose zone in reducing the risk of groundwater pollution?
Our track record of providing expert advice goes back a long way, and our work has included contributing to sections of the New Zealand Guidelines for Utilisation of Sewage Effluent on Land.
