Sustainable Drainage and Water Treatment System
The new home is supported by a Sustainable Drainage and Water Treatment System. The system includes: rain/storm water attenuation (utilising the AquaCells pictured); a rainwater harvesting system with recovered water used for the landscaped and planted area; and a wastewater treatment plant that harnesses natural processes for effective sewage and wastewater treatment. The treatment plant does not need emptying like a traditional septic tank, but instead treats waste using natural processes and produces water that is safe to feed into a second water attenuation system. The whole system operates independently from public sewers or watercourses and requires only annual maintenance.
