Environmental monitoring for water and wastewater is required for range of purposes and is undertaken as per Australian Standards series AS/NZS 5667:1998 and EPA requirements.
HAZCON can help with developing an environmental monitoring program including sampling and laboratory analysis at a Accredited National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) laboratory.

On Site Waste Water Management

On-site wastewater management systems are required to manage domestic and commercial wastewater in unsewered areas. The suitability of a site to accept treated wastewater is dependent on the soil type, soil profile, topography, hydrology, hydrogeology, and the proposed wastewater loads and effluent quality. The effective management of on-site wastewater treatment systems requires comprehensive site evaluation and system design, followed by appropriate system installation, operation and maintenance.

HAZCON specialises in the evaluation of wastewater management systems, from domestic to large commercial applications. Their expertise includes:

  • Site and soil evaluations to characterise site conditions, identify site constraints and determine available areas for land application of effluent.
  • Calculation of expected wastewater flows, peak design capacity and equivalent population (EP).
  • Mass balance and nutrient modelling using MEDLI to determine the area required for the sustainable irrigation of effluent.
  • Selection of appropriate wastewater treatment systems and detailed land application area designs.
  • Preparation of wastewater reports, designs and Site Based Management Plans to achieve development approval and meet state government licensing requirements.
  • Certification following the installation of wastewater treatment systems and land application areas.

HAZCON offers the following range of sampling services:

  • Surface water sampling including real-time water quality monitoring and waste water and trade waste assessments;
  • Groundwater sampling from wells, boreholes and drainage systems;
  • QA/QC sample analysis in line with AS 4482.1, AS 4482.2 and the ASC NEPM (2013) at a NATA accredited laboratory.

What is Legionella and Legionnaire's Disease?

Legionella is a bacterium that is naturally found in fresh water, as well as man-made water sources. The bacterium thrives in water temperatures between 20 and 45 degrees centigrade. It can be found in hot and cold water systems, cooling towers, condensers, hot tubs, humidifiers and emergency showers to name a few.

There are various state requirements to undertake Risk Management Plans (RMP), conduct routine investigations, cleaning and maintenance programs. HAZCON are certified Cooling Tower Auditors and can conduct review of RMP's.
