While integrated water management (IWM) demands consideration of all aspects of the water cycle, the scope of this document will be limited to wastewater treatment and reuse. Nevertheless, the contractor will be expected to position this guidance document within the broader context of IWM so that 'cross water cycle' impacts (i.e. impacts on other aspects of the water cycle such as drinking water, surface water and stormwater) are minimized, and synergies between elements optimised. 2.2 Consultancy Overview The guideline will give consideration to the following overarching principles (derived from Wilderer 2004): A Decentralized wastewater systems should provide the same level of customer satisfaction as current centralized systems. B Costs for implementation should not exceed those of centralized systems, and ideally should be lower, both for the customer and the community as a whole. C Operation and maintenance of decentralized systems should be in the hands of suitably trained personnel, preferably with centralized alarm and control systems. D The distance from the source of wastewater to the wastewater treatment plant(s) should be as short as possible to minimise costs of sewer installation and maintenance. E The amount of water applied for transport of waste substances should be as low as possible to minimize overall water use and energy costs for pumping. F Materials recovery (biosolids, nutrients and recycled water) should be maximised and these recovered materials should be appropriately treated so that they are safe for their proposed reuse. G Systems and technologies recommended by the guideline should be sustainable, affordable and robust to the typical disturbances that occur in small systems (eg shock loads or operator error). This should include minimisation of the complexity of maintenance and the availability of spare parts and competent service agents. H The guidance document should ensure that communities are provided with all relevant information during the planning stage of a new development (or a system upgrade) so that they can choose the most appropriate technological options and acceptable trade-offs between upfront capital costs and ongoing operation and maintenance costs. Externalities, in particular impacts on other communities, future generations and the environment, should be minimised or eliminated. This may not involve full costing of externalities, just consideration of their impact. I The contractor must also show that they have considered the following concepts: a The potential for wastewater source separation, e.g. 1 light greywater (water from showers, baths and rinse water from laundry), 2 dark greywater (water from basins, kitchen sinks, dishwashing machines and first wash water from washing machines), 3 yellow water (urine) and 4 blackwater (grossly contaminated with faecal matter), to reduce treatment costs and the options for source control to improve effluent quality for reuse purposes b The potential for onsite reuse of the less contaminated components of the wastewater stream (e.g. greywater) to minimise transport costs for both wastewater from, and water supply to, residences (e.g. via beneficial onsite greywater reuse involving potable substitution, not just disposal) c The potential for decentralized wastewater systems to be integrated with other elements of the water cycle. 2.3 Scope The scope of the project includes wastewater treatment and reuse systems for communities of less than 1000 equivalent persons (EP). This figure (1000 EP) is arbitrary but essentially the project scope is intended to capture all systems serving smaller communities where connection to existing centralized systems, and onsite treatment and disposal, are not the best options. It does not preclude use of centralised wastewater treatment and reuse systems within the local community, if this is the most appropriate solution. The project scope does not include issues relating exclusively to onsite wastewater treatment and disposal or reuse of effluent on properties with less than 21 equivalent persons as this is covered by existing regulation under the Plumbing and Drainage Act and its subordinate legislation.
