Aquarevo homes will connect to an intelligent pressure sewer system that pumps wastewater to a water recycling plant within the development, treats the water to Class A standard, and sends it back to each home for use in the garden, toilet or washing machine.
The water recycling plant has been designed to look like a natural garden within a greenhouse and to blend into the surrounding landscape. For the first time in Australia it will use the Organica Food Chain Reactor process, which has a low energy footprint and contains odour within the structure.
Widely used in urban settings across Europe and China, this state-of-the-art treatment process combines natural and artificial root environments to provide a highly robust and energy efficient treatment process with a low carbon footprint.
The plant itself is prefabricated, which reduces the time for onsite assembly to approximately six weeks.
Once installed and commissioned, landscaping around the water recycling plant will provide a usable open space for the local community.
