There is an increasing trend to require more efficient use of water resources, both in urban and rural environments. The re-use of water for agricultural and urban irrigation is often viewed as a positive means of recycling water due to the potential large volumes of water that can be used.

Recycled water can have the advantage of being a constant, reliable water source and reduces the amount of water extracted from the environment.

Typical Projects

Netafim has extensive experience in single site STP (Sewage Treatment Plant) projects such as irrigation for timber plantations, pasture, and open space providing all major products and services to implement and maintain this type of project.

Other typical projects are pipeline systems from one or more STP servicing a number of end users such as vineyards and sport clubs.

Our system have irrigated crops such as and not limited to timber plantations, turf farms, viticulture, vegetables, nurseries, orchards, flowers, pastures and urban developments in turf and garden beds

Netafim offer a complete range of services to ensure that any municipal onsite project has the complete package to ensure its success.

These services include: Project Development Services are aimed at assisting clients with new irrigation developments, ensuring the best solutions are achieved at each stage of a project. Design Services offering clients and consultants CID (Certified Irrigation Designers by IAA) work to design all hydraulic calculations for a project.

Controller Support Services are aimed at ensuring the efficient and sustained operation of the automation system as an integral part of the overall irrigation system. System Review Services involves reporting on research of an irrigation/ dispersal system by calculating hydraulics in field tests together with reviewing existing designs.

Municipal Case Studies

Wide Bay Water Timber Plantation Wide Bay Water Corportaion (WBWC) has devised a winning solution for the dispersal of their wastewater by recycling it onto a timber plantation. Currently 300,000 trees have been planted (approximately 220 hectares) with expansion to one million trees by 2010.

A centrally controlled automated drip irrigation system using Class B effluent water from Hervey Bay's two sewage treatment plants irrigates the timber plantations.
