Project management, procurement, contract documentation and supervision of Project Pipi for the Huia-Cornwallis Ratepayers & Residents Association Inc. Huia, Auckland in 2009:

Aerial photographs of Huia Hall and Project Pipi site by Rick Mayne.

This exciting new concept in on-site wastewater innovation was constructed in Huia in June 2009 and has been operating under ARC consent since September 2009, as a technology demonstration project. It was the first known zero-energy, nil-discharge, no pump, non-odour, above-ground, modular, low-maintenance on-site wastewater system anywhere. It quickly earned the new category title of a ‘no-tech’ system.

The Project Pipi wastewater system is the brain-child of inventor Col Bell of Simple Wastewater Solutions Ltd, Matakana. This photo shows the static wind evaporator house, a new concept that eliminates the need for a subsoil pipe distribution system for treated effluent (except when required by consenting authorities for emergency overflow).

The Raintank Model for Rodney District Council, 2006. Qmex developed this advanced spreadsheet model for use by rural residents of RDC, enabling users to design their own rainwater tanks according to location, historic rainfall records, water use habits and water use parameters for their particular site:

The Raintank Model accesses 25 years of rainfall records for 11 gauge sites throughout Rodney District, and interpolates these for each specific site. The model provides each user with their optimised tank volume(s) and an estimated risk of running dry in any single year. Tank array sizes and numbers can be varied by the user to determine the best set up for their situation and budget.
