Case Study

Scenic Community Threatened By Wastewater Crisis

Source: Orenco Systems, Inc.

Located in rural New Zealand, the farming community of Piopio was in need of a wastewater treatment system. In this area where run-off from dairy farms into streams and rivers can be a cause for concern, failing septic tanks at individual homes and shops were also having an increasingly negative effect on the local environment. The District Council began the process of searching for the most effective solution, ultimately selecting an Orenco® Effluent Sewer and AdvanTex® Treatment System.
