Commercial On-site & Decentralized Wastewater Systems Commercial On-site & Decentralized Wastewater Systems

Commercial On-site AND Decentralized Wastewater Systems

Commercial on-site systems require specialized designs and installations.
The wastewater chemistry, volumes, and generation patterns can be very different to domestic on-site installations.
This presentation will use a variety of case studies to demonstrate the different design principles used for commercial on-site systems. The case studies will include Recreational Vehicle Parks, Taverns, Wineries, Eco-Villages, Sports Grounds, and Music Festival sites.
Different types of treatment units will be examined and their advantages and disadvantages will be discussed.
Dispersal techniques will also be scrutinized. The maintenance requirements of the various treatment and dispersal systems will be discussed. The complications of intermittent wastewater generation will be examined. The importance of odour control and minimizing risks to members of the general public will be explained.
The aim of this presentation is to show how commercial on-site systems differ from domestic installations and best practices for design, modelling and monitoring operations.
