2018 – 2019 Veolia Banksmeadow Waste Transfer Terminal (BTT) Audit, Design and Construction

Veolia Waste and Environmental Services operate under a strict EPA license requiring stormwater contaminated with leachate from operations to meet high standards prior to discharge. Modification of an existing stormwater detention basin was identified as an opportunity to more consistently achieve discharge limits.  Optimal Stormwaters hybrid design and construction reconfigured an existing OSD basin to provide spill control, primary and secondary treatment by extending the horizontal flow through a dense reedbed. 

Further operational improvements have been made through the stormwater infrastructure audit of the entire facility, training and rectification works.  Optimal is now operating the rainwater harvesting scheme for the transfer terminal. Optimal will keep abreast of water quality monitoring to validate the strategy!
