Effluent Storage

Effluent storage is a critical part of the process allowing ‘deferred irrigation’ and typically the biggest infrastructure investment when considering a new effluent system. Therefore it is firstly important to get the capacity of the storage facility right and ensuring you have an accredited Storage Calculation which will stand the test of time.


The right storage calculation will consider a range of key inputs ranging from your soil type, climate, existing irrigation capability, and where the system could be developed in the future. You may need to consider extra storage for added flexibility or management objectives.

It is also important to consider the various options available such as ponds, tanks, and bladders, as these can lend themselves to the site in different ways. One option is often more practical and/or cost-effective than the other for a given site. The team at Effluent and Irrigation can drill down the capacity and best options for your farm – do it once and do it right!

“We needed an effluent system that required little maintenance and that would definitely comply with local council regulations.


In the past we spent around 14 hours a week just on effluent disposal, now it is only about 1 hour a week.


That is HUGE saving in man Power for us.”
