Event details
Our next branch get together is a field trip to Clutha on 31 August where Clutha District Council have kindly opened their doors to show us some of the great work they’ve been doing to significantly improve performance of their Waste Water oxidisation ponds. 3 Waters junkies this is your chance to spend the day talking to Clutha and our other lower south island Council’s about anything and everything to do with Waste Water Treatment.

In a nutshell….

Clutha District Council has already added additional treatment to five of its ten oxidisation pond systems to meet new resource consent conditions and now, with numbers six and seven, has added Bio-Shells, new to NZ and membrane filtration. The visit to one of the sites at Kaitangata, will look at the systems installed, in which the Bio-Shells aim at nutrients and the membranes at solids and biota . The combinations of biological and mechanical treatment is expected to ensure consent conditions are met with an increased resilience over purely biological systems.

We hope to see you there!

Why should I attend?

Updates will be provided by the IPWEA Board along with presentations from both government and private sector professionals from around the South Island. Keep your networks strong, be inspired, and benefit from our speakers perspectives and experiences.  Agenda to come.

The benefits of staying connected with other professionals who are active in our industry are huge. Our busy workloads can sometimes leave us feeling isolated. Branch meetings are a great way to connect, be inspired, discuss difficulties and learn solutions - for free!  They are designed to expose us to new ideas, reinforce a sense of community in public works, and re-energise us for the task ahead!

Young IPWEA  we strongly encourage you to extend this learning opportunity to your younger team members.
