Nevada Effluent Management Services


When you're looking to invest in the install or upgrade of dairy effluent systems and equipment, you want to get it right the first time. As accredited effluent system designers with over 30 years experience, we're here to support you in getting the systems and equipment you need for an efficient, effective, council compliant effluent management system that'll enhance the value of your farm.

Effluent Management System Design


If you’re in the position of needing a new effluent management system planned and designed, then it’s a very exciting place to be! The amalgamation of farms, new cow sheds, or whatever the reason may be provide the opportunity to enhance your operations, making them more efficient, effective and future-proofed.


Nevada’s effluent management specialists are Farm Dairy Effluent (FDE) System Design Accredited and have a proven track record when it comes to designing systems that ‘get it right the first time’. Every farm, and farmer is unique, so there’s no ‘one size fits all’ solution. We’ll work with you, asking the right questions to get to know your farm, your goals, and how you intend to operate to develop a new effluent management system design to match.

DESC – Dairy Effluent Storage Calculations


Nevada’s here to make sure your effluent system ticks all the boxes, and we aim to futureproof it so the boxes remain ticked for years to come!

Nevada specialists can provide you with a DESC to be put with your Farm Environment Plan (FEP). These are important not only for council compliance, but also if you are needing to submit a consent application.

Effluent Pond/Storage Planning & Placement


Need more effluent storage? No worries! We can help with all aspects of effluent pond/storage planning and placement including:


  • DESC – Dairy Effluent Storage Calculations
  • Choosing the best type of effluent storage
  • Deciding on the best size to suit your farm’s long-term goals
  • Advice on placement, pond lining and council compliance
  • Integration with new or existing systems - stone traps, sumps, weeping walls, pipes/hydrants, pumps and stirrers
  • Project management  


Restructuring Existing Effluent Systems


Transforming an old effluent management system into an efficient, effective system that brings value to a farm is something we are passionate about!


Opportunities to revamp and restructure an existing system are often seen when:


  • You’re outgrowing the old system (more storage needed, need to spread further etc)
  • Equipment is old and needs upgrading
  • The existing system is simply not working/not effective, and nutrients are being wasted
  • You’d like to be more efficient and reduce labour/running costs
  • Council compliance rules have changed
Nevada’s effluent management specialists will assess your existing infrastructure and equipment, your farm’s layout, operations, and any unique attributes, council compliance considerations, and talk to you about your goals to help formulate a plan to restructure your existing effluent management system and get you where you want to be.

Re-purposing Redundant Systems


If you’ve got redundant systems such as old treatment ponds, or sumps that are no longer needed, talk to us! These systems may not have the use they were originally intended for, but it doesn’t mean they are USELESS. In fact, they can often be re-purposed to add value to your new effluent system.
