Wastewater Collection, Treatment and Disposal

The collection and disposal of wastewater in a safe manner is critical to maintaining the standards required in our communities. At Tonkin Consulting, we provide planning, design and delivery of wastewater infrastructure. We provide advice and design solutions to collect, treat and dispose of wastewater from dense urban environments, industrial facilities and localised rural systems.

Our team of professional engineers, scientists and technical officers are highly skilled in the water management industry and provide industry leading service and advice. We are dedicated to finding effective and suitable solutions for the collection, treatment and disposal of wastewater.

At Tonkin Consulting, we provide both planning, design and construction of new infrastructure, as well as ongoing operational support. We provide ongoing delivery and optimisation of existing water and wastewater services including collection, treatment and disposal. Our experience ranges from planning and investigation studies through to upgrades and extensions of treatment facilities and asset management.
