Effluent management - Chile
|Source : Soprole - Roger Wrigley|
- The geography of Chile dictates that the types of dairy production are dictated by latitude and elevation.
- There are concerns with inappropriate effluent management and associated pollution of watercourses which are used for domestic and industrial water supply and are fed from the Andes.
- Better management of water, solids and energy is essential given the nature of Chilean water catchments.
- The following show sections of a dairy effluent manual prepared by Soprole and the Chilean Development Agency. This manual was prepared for Chile based on Australian waste management practices.
