AdvanTex® Treatment Offers Small Footprint
Kiwi Corral Country Backpackers is a hostel in New Zealand’s Bay of Plenty that caters to seasonal workers. As part of the renewal process for its wastewater discharge-to-land Resource Consent (discharge permit), the hostel wanted to upgrade its treatment system so its facilities could accommodate up to 500 people at a time. Along with the fluctuating loads common to the lodging industry, another large challenge was the very limited land space available for effluent dispersal.
After considering many treatment options, planners chose a two-stage AdvanTex® Wastewater Treatment System, followed by another Orenco® technology, a high-infiltration shallow pressurized dispersal system (SPDS). The AdvanTex system has a small footprint and consistently produces the high-quality effluent necessary for the SPDS to be effective in a tight space.
