AQUAGO was in Australia with the Australian Water Association in february 2015.
We have presented the results of our case studies concerning the improvement of wastewater treatment lagoons capacities.
This conference allowed us to compare the wastewater treatment technologies between Europe and Australie. The surface constraints are very different, and the regulations in ressource protection and water scarcity led the Australian standards to develop recycling solutions.
In Australia, considering the lack of water, wastewater is treated and recycled in irrigation and dosmetic use.
In forbitting any water discharge in the rivers, the Australians protect the aquatic ecosystems from eutrophication. The new Class A WTP product water ! Could Europe get inspiration from this sustainable example ?
Some innovative and pleasant solutions are experimented, such as using goldfishes in the WTP to control sludge production !
