Australia and Pacific wastewater solutions – Where are we now?

Providing wastewater solutions across Australia and in the Pacific requires some moving around. True Water staff have been working in some interesting places recently. Our headquarters have felt a bit quiet. It seems like everybody is travelling within Australia and to the Pacific to meet with clients, conduct servicing and training, assess sites for consultancy work or install new sewage treatment systems.

Wastewater Treatment Education for Fijian projects

A True Water site technician recently spent time in Fiji in the Pacifc, completing work at the Nanuka Beachfront Villas ready for the opening. The villas have now been connected to the sewage treatment facilities installed under the supervision of True Water on a previous visit.

During their time on site, True Water has been providing ongoing education to employees of the Auberge Resorts development in the day to day maintenance of the sewage treatment facilities.  Due to this onsite training, our technicians can manage the site between visits with support from the Nanuku staff. By providing this important service, our client can be confident and secure in the operation of the wastewater treatment plants.

Our Marketing team has also been busy in Fiji, meeting with Rotary Pacific and various Government organisations to assess the sanitation need of a number of schools in the Naitasiri district.

Australian Desert to the Tropics

Our Commercial Manager is a busy man. He was experiencing the vastness of the Pilbara with a site visit in Newman a few weeks ago. A couple of weeks later he was enjoying the lushness of the Wujal Wujal community in the Cape York Peninsula. When planning or assessing a major project, having one of our expert team members visit is important. These vastly different locations require different solutions and we customise every system for ultimate performance.

True water systems are becoming increasingly popular in remote locations. It begins with the easy transport of our light and compact pre-fabricated systems to the site. The guaranteed reliability of our systems is the main benefit for these isolated sites. When you are a long way from anywhere, you need something that works. The low ongoing maintenance requirements also helps for these remote spots too.

The Real Travellers

Our installation and maintenance teams are the real unsung heroes of the company. As a full service company, so much attention seems to focus on the design and planning of a system. But our technicians are out there ensuring every system is installed and operating perfectly.

Papua New Guinea is another of our more unusual locations with our maintenance team making regular visits. Reliable systems, remote telemetry, and locally trained staff reduce our travel needs. But our maintenance team still visit Papua New Guinea to help out and conduct training.

We have many systems close to our NSW and Queensland bases for quick and easy visits. This is great for allowing the maintenance team to enjoy home life before jetting off around the country again.

Island Life in the Pacific

As well as Pacific islands like Fiji and Papua New Guinea, we are often visiting islands closer to home. Islands such as Fraser Island and Lord Howe Island are World Heritage locations and very important. A special approach is needed protect the incredible natural wonders of the islands. True Water have installed systems that allow everyone to enjoy the islands while still protecting them.

Fraser Island is the world’s largest sand island and a challenging location for infrastructure. Our systems on the island are not only compact and discrete, they also treat to a very high level. We have worked closely with National Park authorities in a great team effort.

True Water’s General Manager has been meeting with members of the Fraser Coast Council on the island recently as well. Planning is underway for more upgrades to ensure even better protection for Fraser Island in the future.

From Australia to the Pacific, our team provides wastewater solutions

As well as the remote and exotic locations, we obviously do a lot of work in the more populated parts of the country too. Sometimes we might be helping with consultancy on a residential subdivision on the fringes of Brisbane. Next, we are in a large town in NSW where a commercial development has a problem. If the local municipal wastewater plant is at capacity, we are called in to find a solution.

Then it might be a system for a tourism facility next to a national park in Victoria. We are also helping with many service stations around the country at the moment. The eastern suburbs of Perth and Brighton in Tasmania have service station projects we are currently assessing.

All of these locations are amazing in their own way. From Australia to the Pacific, we look forward to finding the next place that needs our wastewater expertise, and then going there too.
