Lang Walker, director of the Walker Corporation, recently inaugurated the entrance to the suburb. With 12,000 homes, three schools and large shopping centers, this community promises to be an ideal place to live. Riverlea the Flovac vacuum sewer community.
Riverlea, has a vacuum sewerage system supplied by Flovac, due to the environmental benefits it provides in areas with high groundwater tables. Installing the vacuum system means less pump station infrastructure, which translates into less energy consumption. In addition, the shallow piping system works under negative pressure, which minimizes the risk of wastewater infiltration and leakage into the environment. The system is also very flexible and low cost.
The use of wireless monitoring technology at collection wells is a major advancement in the field of vacuum sewer systems. With this technology, operational costs and risks can be significantly reduced, providing a more efficient and cost-effective solution for developers. SCADA utilities play a critical role in the system by incorporating predictive alerts, rainwater sensors, pressure sensing, and energy usage, allowing operators and management to have full access to this information through a cloud platform. This provides a comprehensive overview of the system’s performance, enabling operators to quickly identify and address any issues that may arise.
Vacuum sewer systems are becoming increasingly popular with developers due to their environmental benefits and low cost to install. Flovac supplied a deployable vacuum pump station to serve the first 200 houses prior to the construction of the main pump station infrastructure. This system is also often used in septic tank to sewer programs for existing cities.
In summary, Riverlea, offers a vibrant community and state-of-the-art vacuum sewer system, making it an ideal place to live in South Australia.
