Water Quality Management Systems
Terraqua Environmental Solutions have entering into an exclusive agreement with BIOMATRIX WATER to increase the total scope of waterway services and solutions offered by the Land & Water Group
Together with our partners we offer a range of services to benefit waterway users, provision of habitat, increased biodiversity, improved water quality, as well as environmental benefits we add amenity value and recreational opportunities. We offer full project development assistance, including client presentations, initial site meetings, feasibility studies, designs, calculations, quotations, installation, commissioning and after sales service.
The Biomatrix system is an engineered floating ecology designed to optimise powerful ecological treatment processes within an attractive feature of the aquatic landscape. The Biomatrix combines the latest developments in ecological engineering with new biofilm research and traditional wastewater treatment processes. Whole system engineered ecologies provide an energy efficient, low life cycle cost treatment solution.
Biomatrix systems are ideally suited for contaminated canals, rivers, lakes, reservoirs, wetlands, SSSIs, fenlands, fishing lakes, estuaries, and aquaculture; as well as providing effective treatment of high strength waste in purpose built lagoons and treatment cells.
Treatment Processes Within Biomatrix Systems:
- Improves water clarity
- Removes and stabilize nutrients
- Reduces algae
- Breaksdown industrial chemicals
- Removes Biological and Chemical Oxygen Demand
- Filters out Suspended Solids and particulate
High Strength and Low Cost
The Biomatrix Islands have a durable design and efficient construction, at a fraction of the cost of the comparative systems. The main system components can be manufactured off-site allowing even large Biomatrix systems to arrive on the construction site by truck with all of the main components ready for assembly and installation.
The systems are designed in sections, which can be configured in attractive natural shapes. The Biomatrix unit can be designed to blend with the existing waterscape in strategic locations where performance can be optimized. The system can be configured along the edge of the waterway, or centrally as islands or archipelagos.
The Biomatrix system can incorporate variable levels of buoyancy from 10kg/m2 to over 100 kg/m2. The use of different levels of buoyancy allow areas of walkways, floating bridges, pavilions, boat docking sites or public artworks to be integrated with the treatment system.
The Biomatrix provides the foundation and the substrate to support a diversity of life forms from many different phylogenetic kingdoms. These include the bacteria, fungi, algae, protozoa, annelids, mollusks, insects, vertebrates (including frogs and turtles), and higher plants. These multitudes of life forms, in concert, have the capability to treat wastes, pathogens and toxins. The basic technological and scientific principles governing the design of natural treatment systems have been well articulated and subjected to scientific review.
Biomatrix systems provide excellent wildlife habitat and can be designed with additional wildlife features such as bird nesting areas. The Biomatrix system optimises a mutually beneficial interface between humanity and nature with the end result being a cleaner and healthier water system for all.
