Subsurface Irrigation Wimmera Wastewater Treatment are local installers of subsurface irrigation systems. These systems are used in the disposal of treated wastewater.
Advantages of a subsurface irrigation disposal system. -Waste water is distributed over the entire area for even absorption, and transpiration. -Nutrient take-up by the surrounding vegetation is maximized as the water is utilized for irrigation. -Health risks are eliminated as bacteria, viruses and pathogens are not applied to the surface. Soil microbes consume any residual bacteria and organic matter. -There is no surface water run-off, or ponding that can contaminate or pollute surface water streams with treated effluent. -Surfaces can be safely used by humans and animals at all times and even whilst the system is in operation. -The effluent water can be utilised to supplement irrigation requirements, under lawn and landscaped areas, thereby reducing potable water use. -Installation, site preparation and works are less disruptive and intrusive, with no excess soil for removal, or screenings required in trenches. The original site soil is used for backfilling. -Small, odd shaped and sloping areas can also be watered by the system. -The entire system is underground, eliminating damage by lawn mowers, animals and children and no moving parts means low maintenance and high reliability.
