Agricultural reed beds and wetlands are suitable for the treatment of high volume, low nutrient wastewaters, reducing the need for additional capacity in storage facilities, meaning less land spreading.
Agri sector lechates/wastewater/runoffs – Effluent from dairy beef, poultry and pig farming activities – Clean and dirty yard runoffs – Pollution control
Food industry – dairy, pig, meat processing
Dairy parlour washings/vegetable washings etc.
Roof run offs
Field runoff filtration buffer zones as intercepts located near lakes and rivers on field margins, reduce potential impact of pollution. (E.g. slurries, fertiliser, biocides, silt rain wash)
Drain/ditch/small stream – damming, widening, planting. These small measures can greatly improve local water quality
Habitat enhancement, Habitat and catchment management.
Rainwater harvesting to pond/wetland, acting as a reservoir prior to use for irrigation or recycling
