Ballarat Landfill

HydroTerra is working with Ballarat City Council to assist in their ongoing commitment to making their landfill sites are some of the most efficient and effective in Australia. This multi-stage process includes:

1. The installation of cutting-edge monitoring equipment to ensure their landfills meet all environmental obligations as part of the annual reporting cycle as well as have the capability to address issues in real-time.

 2. Optimisation of compliance reporting through the co-development of robust SOPs as well as semi-automated reporting systems.


Stage 1

Ballarat City Council engaged HydroTerra to provide technical assistance for the troubleshooting and repair of two lysimeters on site. To develop efficiencies in their compliance requirements we implemented real time monitoring of the lysimeters and weather stations data. The lysimetry data was restored and routed into DataStream for future landfill data management, all historical data was restored.
