2. Disposal of rain / storm water and untested / treated winery effluent

Having an onsite waste water management system will not apply to all production operations. Where such a system exists opportunities for recycling and reuse of water and waste products increases.

Best Practice

Contaminated storm water, winery wastewater, wine and grape juice that may escape from drains, pipes, sumps, tanks, retention basins or other facilities drain into the wineries wastewater management system.

Minimum Standard

Dispose of trade effluent in accordance with the relevant water authority and statutory requirements.
