Introducing SmartWatch

SmartWatch is a proactive effluent and wastewater disposal monitoring solution developed and managed by SWE. Initially designed for viticulture, we have also rolled out SmartWatch to horticulture and agriculture industries.

SmartWatch anticipates and solves disposal compliance issues, ensuring that your processes and equipment comply with resource consent conditions, freeing you up to focus on your core business.

The SmartWatch programme

  • Evaluates and reviews any waste issues
  • Implements and maintain agreed schedules to ensure compliance
  • Outlines next steps in handling or treating waste
  • Improves land owner/manager awareness of the importance of quality in waste design and servicing
  • Delivers real operational, financial, environmental and production improvements for land owners/managers.
  • In order to successfully manage effluent disposal the system must be well-designed, well-planned, and well-monitored. A successful evaluation involves knowing how to take measurements, where to take measurements and how to interpret results.

SWE field visits are complemented by disposal design experience to ensure the system is adequate to requirements, sustainable, environmentally-sound and future-proofed.

The SmartWatch process involves trained staff and expert design engineers visiting your site to evaluate and review any waste and effluent disposal issues, undertaking a thorough review of the effluent/water disposal system, and identifying issues for rectification and any opportunities for optimisation or recycling.

SWE will look at the overall management of the system; then a management and maintenance plan is submitted to you and, on your agreement, undertaken to meet compliance and operating goals.

The Benefits

There are many benefits to you undertaking and implementing SmartWatch, including:

  • Identifying and rectifying effluent disposal system failure (such as monitoring systems, fault finding, replacement of faulty equipment, reporting and so on).
  • Compliance that ensures the handling and treating of your effluent is in line with resource consent conditions.
  • Receiving an objective solution, as we are not tied in to offering one solution to all clients, but rather can identify the best solution for each client’s individual needs.
  • Gaining a better understanding of the complexities of effluent disposal and the benefits of regular maintenance.
  • Enabling more accurate forward planning and budgeting, for capital expenditure for future maintenance and upgrades.
  • Creating open discussions, about environmental impact management, green development ideas, land improvement and regional water conservation and management.
  • Being more environmentally-friendly, as we are able to tailor monitoring and solutions to each micro-climate, meaning more efficient use of water and less wastewater.
  • Capable ongoing management and monitoring of your wastewater process and system, with emphasis on busy seasons, and being reliably and regularly informed.
  • Lower running costs, as a result of fewer breakdowns and increased lifespan of the plant.
