Woolworths Seyville, Victoria

Stringent water quality objectives require effective quality solutions. The versatility and performance of the Ecosol Sand Filter  (ESF) has proven to be a winning inclusion for this project.

WOOLWORTHS  SEYVILLE, VICTORIA

A proposal to construct a mixed development precinct in Seville, Victoria was lodged in June 2011. The development at 568 Warburton Highway was to consist of supermarket shops, medical centre, petrol station and a carwash.  The 20 million dollar project was the first of its kind in Seyville and would provide essential services for the community and subsequently provide employment for approximately 120 people.

In March 2014 Ecosol was contacted  by the awarded Builder for the project Becon Constructions. Consultation called for assistance in meeting the water quality objectives of Yarra Ranges Shire and Melbourne Water. Water quality was paramount as the development was adjacent to the riparian corridor.  The proposed solution that met with Melbourne Waters approval consisted of a diversion pit (diverting proposed flows to be treated) an Ecosol 20Kl pre-cast sediment chamber and an Ecosol Sand Filter (ESF 5750).

The Ecosol  Sand  Filter  (ESF 5750) is an off-line proprietary device that offered primary & secondary treatment, all in one system. This device helps to overcome the need for multiple treatment measures and assists with catchments where space or the drainage grade limits the use for Bio-filtration/retention systems.

Ecosol Pty Ltd successfully designed, manufactured and supplied the following devices for this project:

  • One (1) Ecosol 20 KL Sediment Chamber
  • One (1) Ecosol Sand Filter – ECF 5750

The components were manufactured  at Ecosols manufacturing facility in Pooraka, South Australia. The units were transported  to site at the request of the client complete with all internals pre-fitted. The filtration media was made available and shipped to site for immediate installation once the unit had been plumbed and was ready to be commissioned.

Stringent water quality objectives require effective quality solutions. The versatility and performance of the Ecosol Sand Filter  (ESF) has proven to be a winning inclusion for this project.

The mixed use development officially opened In June 2014.
