Efficient winery wastewater management has never been more important.
High-discharge standards are essential for wineries concerned with water reuse and recycling. Wineries have always been good water recyclers by reusing treated wastewater for frost and fire protection and by discharging their treated effluents on the vineyard and elsewhere on their lands. Even so, these are one-use solutions, and many wineries now are exploring methods to use the water many times through reuse efforts within their facilities.
Because it is a strong organic waste, winery wastewater is suitable for biological wastewater treatment systems.The most common type of biological treatment system employed by wineries is the aerated lagoon, or facultative pond. As regulations continue to tighten, alternative processing methods, like activated sludge, sequencing batch reactors (SBRs), membrane bioreactors (MBRs) and artificial wetlands, are gaining favor. Each of these processes, when properly operated, is capable of producing an effluent that is suitable for spray irrigation of vineyards, landscape irrigation and other land applications.
Heritage Systems has developed products and services that are focused on the efficient operation of winery wastewater treatment processes.
Our solutions ensure that the water you discharge to land is sustainable, replenishing and compliant with state regulations.
