Development of a policy document, technical guidelines, a biogeophysical GIS site suitability model for decentralised wastewater solutions and concept designs for two Priority Sewage Program villages for Sydney Water

This project initiated development of the Decentralised Sewage Model (DSM) which we have subsequently used to evaluate the site opportunities and servicing options for numerous other villages in NSW, VIC and TAS. The project involved thorough research of available technologies, management models and construction, operation and maintenance issues from case studies and published guidelines both in Australia and overseas. It culminated in the preparation of innovative concept designs for the sewage reticulation, treatment and reuse, for two rural villages.
