Facilities upgrade at Council Caravan Park

True Water Australia are working with a local council to replace their existing wastewater system in one of their caravan parks. The park’s location on the banks of a River used extensively for oyster leases, makes water quality a serious issue for the park. There are multiple issues on this complex site; prevention of seepage from septic systems into the river system; shallow sandy soil which doesn’t aid the filtration process and the very high water table which can add to water contamination issues.

This meant the system installed at the site had to provide excellent water quality. In fact, the chosen system not only met, but exceeded the Australian Water Treatment Standards by 2 times. True Water were chosen from a large group of tenders based on the high quality of technology employed and our professionalism.

The area is an environmentally sensitive site and has to cope with a maximum capacity of 24,000 litres of wastewater daily from the cabins, camp sites, permanent residents and manager’s residence” said Daniel Mahoney, Manager of Works and Services Group at True Water Australia, who is leading the project. “In addition to the sewerage system, we have also been contracted to upgrade existing drainage and parts of the electrical system. It is very satisfying to be able to offer full project management for all their needs. Works are progressing well and are due for completion by mid December” said Daniel.
