No matter how remote you are, we can do it. We’ve done it for a whole range of organisations – from BHP and the Australian Defence Force, to local wineries and community organisations – and in all kinds of locations, from Karridale to Kalumbaru.
Adding greywater to take the load off the mains water supply and irrigate the bush caravan sites and gardens.
Greywater Diversion System
Wharncliffe Mill Bush Retreat has campsites and caravan sites set amongst the trees in their bush property. Catering for their guests’ needs, and taking care of their gardens, was putting too great a load on their mains water supply.
Instead of an expensive upgrade to existing infrastructure, we designed an appropriate greywater diversion system coming off a renovated ablustions block. Recycling their wastewater works in tandem with the mains water and has allowed them to irrigate areas of revegetation and irrigate their gardens. Now their sites even shadier and it’s a better bush camping experience for everyone.
Providing wastewater management systems for camping facilities that promote sustainable building and management practices.
Greywater System and Composting Toilets
Fair Harvest is a farm which embraces the self-sufficient practices of permaculture and showcases the benefits of sustainable living and building.
When they decided to set up a campground and facilities, they wanted low impact, sustainable resource management wherever they could. After extensive consultations and costings, followed by site evaluations, design and local government approvals, we designed, supplied and installed a comprehensive greywater diversion system and composting toilet facility.
With two composting toilets, all the waste is managed and composted on-site. The greywater from showers and hand basins runs through a diversion system and irrigates the surrounding gardens and trees. And, by using timbers that were grown and milled onsite, the facilities look amazing.
Supplying toilets and buildings to two remote military training bases in Western Australia.
The Australian Defence Force needed toilet facilities in Lancelin, 150km north of Perth. A no-frills solution requiring low maintenance was needed for a site with no water supply. Waterless composting toilets were the ideal solution. We designed and supplied design drawings
for local builders to construct the timber-framed Colorbond clad buildings, with a solar battery system to power the ventilation and lighting.
Thanks to the success of the Lancelin systems, we were engaged to supply similar toilets to a new base in Yampi Sound in the Kimberley. Because of the limited access to this remote site, pre-cut flat-packed building structures were supplied to be assembled on-site by local contractors. Needless to say, these buildings needed to tough, durable and low maintenance to stand up to the harsh conditions of the location.
Bringing remore toilet facilities to help traditional owners get their people back on country.
Remote Toilet and Shower Facilities
Places don’t get much more remote than Silvergull Creek, 150km north of Derby. The Dambimangari people look after a massive area of land and wanted toilets and showers that would let them stay for weeks, even months on their traditional country, and also to cater for tourists that want to visit.
Anthony and a team of local rangers choppered in with the materials to construct two toilets and two showers. Fed with water from a natural spring the ablutions block was constructed in just over a week. While onsite, the Water Wally team realised the original wastewater manmagment plan wasn’t exactly right and, in consulation with the traditional owners, were able to switch and create a more appropriate drainage solution – and still fit in some fishing.
Providing toilet facilities at remote locations along BHP’s railway network between Port Hedland and Newman.
Remote Toilet Facilities
The introduction of these amenities was an important step to provide basic facilities that would, in turn, create more inclusion and diversity for BHP’s rail workers.
Because of the remote location and the potential costs with maintaining the facilities, it was essential that the toilets were low maintenance, have a low environmental impact and would last
in the harsh conditions.
Our solution was to provide a ‘batch’ style composting toilet. We supplied them as complete buildings with toilets that could easily
be transported and dropped on-site.
