AACo - owner of Australia’s largest cattle herd - installed a Rowater multi-purpose treatment system to avoid having to cart water across the outback by truck.
The Brunette Downs Station on the Barkly Tablelands, 350 kms north-east of Tennant Creek had previously used lake and bore water supplemented by carting in water via truck. In times of drought a secure source of water is required with water being required for accommodation purposes, for garden and for stock watering.
Rowater developed a versatile plant able to treat both surface water when it is available and bore water when surface water is insufficient. The plant designed, installed and commissioned provides 240 kL/day of product water and includes screen and media filtration as well as UV pre-treatment, RO and calcite with UV for post-treatment.
The secure water source has greatly improved the working conditions for the staff on-site.
