Water Reuse

ABCO promotes the sensible reuse of all treated wastewater generated by its water and wastewater treatment solutions. The forms of water reuse that are commonly implemented by ABCO customers are spray irrigation and dust suppression.

Spray Irrigation

Spray irrigation distributes the treated wastewater across an area of cleared land. This promotes the growth of vegetation which must be restricted to a permissible level. The water itself sinks into the earth, which acts as a gigantic filter system between the sprinklers and the underground water reservoirs.

ABCO is experienced in the design, installation and maintenance of effective wastewater sprinkler fields and offers this product as both a stand-alone installation and as a package deal with most water and wastewater treatment plants.

Dust Suppression

Particularly in the northwest of Australia, dust can be a dangerous hazard in all fields of work. In mine work, the primary cause of dust is vehicular traffic. The dust generated can cause road accidents. It can also travel to nearby worksites, causing visual and breathing impairment.

To combat this problem, many sites utilise dust suppression trucks, which distribute water from a pond across the surface of all major unsealed roadways. ABCO promotes and encourages the use of all reject and wastewater from our plants for this purpose.
