Design and build water storage pond to overcome water restrictions.
Farm Dairy Effluent (FDE) System, including the design and construction of an effluent storage pond, and the design and implementation of an irrigation to pasture regime to meet Greater Wellington Regional Council Resource Consent Conditions.
As an accredited FDE Designer Irrigation Services lead the project calling on the skills of I.S. Dam Lining to line the storage pond with HPDE liner, thus securely containing effluent run-off. Consideration during the design phase was given to the location, size and solids management. The design also makes use of the existing irrigation system, dispersing green water over pasture at a rate that meets the nutrient management plan when conditions allow.
The FDE system is 32ha in total, consisting of 11ha of high risk area and 21ha of low risk area. Construction of a settlement pond lined with HDPE liner to a working volume of 3,137m3 minimum.
As an accredited FDE Designer, best practice management was applied to design an effluent containment and redistribution system by way of irrigation that meets the industry code of compliance and local regulatory framework.
Variations to the general conditions of resource consent issued by the Greater Wellington Regional Council were required and managed by Irrigation Services. Changes included:
The system utilizes the total existing irrigation system mainline and travelling irrigator.
Adrian Mannering completed the design, with works carried out by the Wairarapa based team.
