RECYCLED WATER / WASTEWATER TREATMENT AND REUSE

Out-Task Environmental has extensive experience in system design and technical specification for recycled water & wastewater strategic planning and operations including odour modelling, risk assessments and community & stakeholder liaison.

These project experiences have involved odour and dust impact and risk assessments for wastewater treatment systems, power stations, waste transfer stations and landfills, raw dairy wastewater irrigation schemes as part of planning and preparation of Environment Protection Authority (EPA Victoria) permissions applications (formerly known as works approvals), annual performance reporting and compliance strategies for EPA Victoria licences.

Example water and wastewater treatment planning & design service projects undertaken by Out-Task Environmental include the following:

Booth Transport, Strathmerton, Australia. Winter storage, aeration basin and evaporation pondage system water and salt balance, capacity and HDPE lining system design and technical specification for EPA Works Approval. Design report delivered that complied with EPA Victoria works approval requirements, and facilitated construction contract for wastewater management critical path item enabling timely commencement of Booth’s Strathmerton operations. Booth’s Transport project was nominated as a finalist in the 2019 Premier’s Environmental Sustainability Awards.


Australian Consolidated Milk (ACM) milk factory, Girgarre, Australia. Milk processing wastewater treatment plant (0.5ML/day), aerated pond and winter storage design upgrade for EPA Victoria works approval application and licencing, and Class C quality recycled water scheme to neighbouring dairy farm. Design included odour modelling. Out-Task Environmental and subcontractors are continuing to provide operational and EPA licence compliance support including wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) commissioning and recycled water scheme environment improvement plan (EIP) monitoring programs.


EiGroup Meatworks abattoir, Gillieston, Australia. Red meat processing wastewater treatment plant (0.5ML/D), screening systems, Chem-P dosed DAF unit, aerated pondage system, maturation ponds and winter storage design for EPA Victoria works approval application including Class C quality recycled water scheme to onsite grazing farm.
