Driving Project Management
Leading Efficiencies Managing Risks
From tender specifications and design responses, to scheduling procurement, manufacture, on‐site delivery and technical support during installation, Aquatec’s Project Managers worked in partnership with Yarra Valley Water and accredited civil contractors Azzona Drainage for asset delivery within budget and to desired timelines.
Building Long Term Infrastructure
Adding Long-term Value
Manufactured in Aquatec’s ISO 9001:2008 controlled factory environment, the mould formed Pump Station consists of reinforced, sulphate resistant cement with epoxy coating across walls and chamber base for long‐term asset protection. Pre-cored penetrations facilitate easy, accurate connection of external pipes on-site.

Dosing & Monitoring Wastewater
Monitoring Systems for Odour Control
The Chemical Dosing System consists of a polyethylene storage tank with level sensors, along with high and low level switches to prevent dry running or overflow. The dosing pump works in tandem with an agitator, releasing a MHL thixotropic, non-settling solution to facilitate product mixing for odour reduction between deliveries. Polyethylene 2000ltr Storage Tank Peristaltic Dosing Pump rated at 50 L/hr @ 10 bar maximum.
Embracing Environmental Protections
Introducing Design Innovations
Submersible Pumps and Hydrostatic Level Sensors are wired to a Twin Pump Controller incorporating state-of-the-art alarm equipment to Yarra Valley Water’s specifications. Combined with Flow Meter and Pressure Transducer, this customised telemetry system provides advanced emergency response mechanisms for pro-active environmental risk management. Fitted with a lockable Switchboard Aluminium powder coated enclosure.
Safeguards for Operation & Maintenance Personnel
Fostering Safer Working Cultures
To ensure the ongoing safety of Yarra Valley Water maintenance personnel, aluminium two part covers with drop down safety grates provide safe access to sewer pump and valve chambers via an Australian Standards compliant Access Ladder. Comprehensive Operation and Maintenance Training supported by user-friendly manuals safeguard Yarra Valley Water personnel for the long-term.
Wastewater Assets for the Long-term
Over a two week period, Aquatec’s Project Managers co-ordinated pre-testing of the concrete Pump Station and Chemical Dosing Station to ensure compliance with Yarra Valley Water’s tender specifications and Australian Standards, along with co-ordination and management of power to these assets. On commissioning, Aquatec facilitated the seamless handover of fully compliant, functioning wastewater assets to Yarra Valley Water and the Merrifield community.
