Groundwater Treatment in Queensland, NSW, ACT

Effectively treating groundwater on construction sites is a statutory requirement as well as an environmental responsibility. Australian Dewatering Systems helps you exceed requirements and have peace of mind.

Local, state and federal authorities are demanding that any groundwater removed from the water table meets, at the very least, minimum water quality criteria according to the EPA guidelines prior to discharge. ADS exceeds the minimum standards and gives clients security in knowing the job is completed correctly the first time.

The increasing legislative and media focus on the discharging of site groundwater has created a legal requirement to treat the groundwater. No longer can a company ignore their environmental responsibilities. ADS has the solution for filtering and monitoring water discharge for all site locations, both onsite and remotely.
