Wastewater System Installation at Arhnem Land Barramundi Lodge

Alongside Wastewater Australiaour team at Garden Master fitted a cutting edge wastewater treatment plant for OutbackSpirit Tours, at the Arnhem Land Barramundi Lodge. The lodge is one of the Territory’s premier lodges for Barramundi fishing, enjoying an incredible location along an escarpment approximately 18 km’s out of Maningrida. It has been completely redeveloped with the guest accommodation each being refurbished with complete luxury furnishings, ensuite bathroom, air-conditioning, front deck and of course our state of the art wastewater treatment plant.

The lodge offers unique fishing licences, allowing access to some of Arnhem Land’s most pristine and remote waterways. After you’ve partaken in fantastic reacreational fishing, the in-house chef will prepare freshly caught Barramundi for you. The restaurant features a large deck and boasts sensational views, the perfect spot for a magical sunset over the Tomkinson River floodplains.

Due to the Eco-sensitive nature of the location the treatment plant had to be capable of producing a consistently high quality effluent with nutrient removal capabilities. Reliability was another factor in the design.The treatment plant was designed to minimise power usage as the resort runs on a combination of solar power and an on-site generator. Along with the main treatment plant, 3 individual pump stations were installed around the site.

The Arnhem Land Barramundi Lodge is available solely for fishing during the months of March & April, and October & November each year.This is due to the water temperatures increasing and the barramundi being at their most active. For the months of May through to September the lodge is exclusively used to accommodate tours operated by Outback Spirit. The abundance of culture, breath-taking landscapes and of course prime recreational fishing, makes the lodge truly one of a kind.

Ngauwudu Safari Camp Septic System Service

Our operations manager Mark Versteegen and service technician Warren had the pleasure of servicing our treatment plant at the Ngauwudu Safari Camp located in the Mitchell Plateau region of the Kimberley. Ran by Outback Spirit Tours,  the Ngauwudu Safari Camp is one of the most eco-friendly facilities in the Kimberley. This region is one of the most captivating places in northern Australia, being home to some of the most spectacular waterfalls, rock art galleries and scenery in the world.

 The Safari Camp is extremely diverse, being home to stunning natural features and a distinctive array of plants and animals. Due to the eco-sensitive nature of the location, Outback Spirit Tours invested in environmentally friendly systems. This included having designed and fitted  a class leading effluent treatment plant by ours truly. When designing the plant our team had to take into consideration the sensitive nature of the location, ensuring the treatment plant was capable of producing a consistently high quality effluent with nutrient removal capabilities.

The luxurious $4 million camp is just as breathtaking as its surroundings, featuring 14 spacious Safari Suites and leading facilities. Both Mark and Waz were treated exceptionally during their stay, and were lucky enough to enjoy some of the regions beautiful natural wonders. “If there is one thing you need to do in life it is to visit the amazing Mitchell Falls.” Just some of the perks of creating sustainabe wastewater solutions for Australia’s most incredible environmental feats!

Alaskan Journey

Last year our partners Wastewater Australia were shortlisted as one of three possible solutions by the Alaskan government to remedy serious water access problems in the northern US state, which had led to a range of health issues. A lack of access to fresh water had spurred the government into looking at ways to install closed-loop recycling systems in homes so water from showers, washing machines and other uses can be cleaned and used over and over again. We are proud to say Wastewater Australia were selected for the international project, with the proven technology of the ultraGTS being shipped to Alaska.

Alaska’s Unique Climate

Alaska is the largest and most sparsely populated U.S. state. It’s known for its diverse terrain of open spaces, mountains and forests, with abundant wildlife and many small towns. With bears larger than bison, national parks the size of nations, and glaciers bigger than other US states. Alaska is definately an epic place! As you can see on the right, Alaska is one of the coldest places on earth, with record lows of -62 degree’s celcius! This brings unique challenges to the Alaskan government and community.

 

Treatment System Installation

After months of planning and years of development, two state of the art ultraGTS Greywater Treatment Systems were installed in the wilds of Alaska. In conjunction with Alaskan engineering firm, Summit consulting, the two companies formed an alliance to improve environmental and sanitation outcomes throughout the remote communities of Alaska. In extreme conditions the two companes brought together a mix of unparalleled knowledge and with the undeniable performance of the ultraGTS, the Alaskan government have seen a tremendous results.
