Crop watering is a major user of water which requires contaminant concentration to be closely monitored. This is to ensure optimal growth of the crop and to ensure its quality. Crop watering with contaminated water can also cause environmental issues, with contaminants potentially leaching through the soil and into groundwater.
Agricultural runoff water can contain a wide variety of pollutants typically as a result of the use of fertilizers, pesticides, and animal manure. Those pollutants typically include Nitrate, Ammonia, and Phosphate and general high organic pollution. Sometimes the run-off even includes synthetic hormones and antibiotics. Pesticides are sprayed on a range of crops to control pests and enhance production, and these chemicals can find their way into water supplies and require treatment.
Clean TeQ Water has experience helping clients reach a range of water treatment goals, including:
- Mobile water treatment plant for hardness removal
- Treating groundwater (including hypersaline water) for use on site
- Selective removal/recovery of many contaminants
Clean TeQ water has a number of technologies suitable for removing nutrients from agricultural run-off water. Our BIONEX™ technology is particularly suitable to reliably remove nitrate and ammonia from large volumes of run-off to below 1 part per billion, making it safe for re-use or discharge. Using this technology we can also remove Phospate, BOD and COD from run-off.
On the water supply side, we can provide agricultural users with low cost zero or minimum brine systems that remove salts from the water supply, thereby preventing soil degradation and ensuring the quality of crops or health of livestock.
