Small on-site domestic wastewater treatment systems – an Australian perspective .
Monday, June 1, 2020 7:00:00 PM EDT – 8:30:00 PM EDT
(June 2: 8.30 AM Australia)
While much of the developed world has high rates of population connectedness to centralised sewerage and wastewater treatment, the need to deliver effective on-site sanitation via small domestic wastewater treatment systems remains essential for public and environmental health protection.
This webinar will begin with an introduction to decentralised wastewater treatment, followed by a survey of the landscape of standards/regulations governing on-site wastewater systems performance certification internationally, with a focus on the relevant Australian context. It will then provide an overview of an Australian on-site wastewater treatment systems performance accreditation testing facility currently operating in South Australia, including an account of the facility’s operation, a description of some of the treatment systems being tested and their performance, and will give some stories of problems encountered and lessons learnt along the way.
Dr Michael Short, University of South Australia, is an environmental scientist with research expertise in urban water systems (water quality, wastewater treatment and water recycling), environmental microbiology and microbial ecology, sustainability and life cycle assessment. He has a keen interest in how environmental science can be applied to inform the development of better environmental management policy.
Presented by Ben Kele, Arris Water, and WasteWater Education 501(c)3.
