June WINNER - Breathtakingly Snowy Project
The Southern Hemisphere Proving Grounds is located on top of the Southern Alps Mountain Range located near Wanaka, New Zealand. All of the major automotive companies bring their vehicles to this site in June - August each year to test in winter conditions. When the facility added its new offices and workshops they had the challenge of how to provide wastewater services to this new site.
Ecoflow assisted the local E/One installer to specify and supply the robust ALL-TERRAIN E/One Grinder Pump. The extreme location of this new facility required the E/One system to pump over 400m in distance with a elevation change of 42m. The client was very impressed with the plug-and-play nature of the system and the robust engineering, which was essential for this harsh environment. Future expansion of this facility is currently being planned and additional E/One pumps have already been specified due to the proven reliable performance.

May WINNER - Breathtakingly Rocky Homes
LOCATED IN THE HEART OF THE ADIRONDACK PARK IN NEW YORK, THE ROCKY TERRAIN MADE A GRAVITY SEWER TOO EXPENSIVE AND ONSITE TREATMENT WAS NOT POSSIBLE DUE TO NATIVE SOIL CONDITIONS.
Whiteface Real Estate / Whiteface Club and Resort knew that E/ONE Sewer Systems could provide their sewer solution. The rocky terrain made gravity sewer too expensive and onsite treatment was not possible due to native soil conditions. Whiteface Development & Construction provides complete design-build homes on 400 plus acres around the resort. Building sites feature a variety of unsurpassed properties, each governed by stringent development covenants which maintain the essence and flavor of the Adirondack Great Camp era.

March WINNER - Magnificent Rocky Development
Environmental restraints and setback requirements eliminated the use of traditional on-site septic systems
Without the use of ALL-TERRAIN SEWER utilizing E/One Grinder Pumps and their ability to sewer anywhere our lot yield would be more in the range of 20 to 25 units in phase one due to the environmental restraints and setback requirements of traditional on-site septic systems and would result in the project not being feasible. By using E/One ATS at each home we were able to eliminate the need for expensive and numerous septic tanks that would need inspections and maintenance in the long term and create something that is envied by all who visit and cherished by those that call it home.

February WINNER - Advanced Flat City
Following the Christchurch earthquake of 2011 in New Zealand, much of the existing underground infrastructure was damaged beyond repair, including the deep gravity sewer system connecting this toilet block to the network.
The earthquake gave Christchurch City council the opportunity to replace ageing gravity sewer networks with something new. E/One Pressurized sewers were retrofitted extensively throughout the city, mostly in areas which experienced the greatest amount of damage and resultant liquefaction. Pressurized sewers were considered to have the greatest amount of resilience when compared to other alternative systems evaluated by Council. A new toilet block was constructed to replace the badly damaged existing toilet block. There was no power to the old toilet block and due to its location, was cost prohibitive to get a power to it. Therefore an off grid toilet block was constructed using solar panels, inverter and battery bank to run an E/One grinder pump which pumps 2700ft to the network.
January WINNER - Breathtakingly Rocky Coastal Town
Sooke Pointe is a project under construction on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. This ocean cottage resort features luxury homes perched right on the cliffs above the Strait of Juan de Fuca. It is the future home of the Whale Research Centre, a convention center, a spa and restaurant. The property has perhaps the most stunning views in the Northwest, with wildlife, mountains, sweeping sunsets and jaw-dropping vistas. But its built on a rock cliff.
As seen in the attached photos, excavation in rock had to be minimized. Further, the package WWTP for the resort resides up the hill, away from the oceanfront development. The options for sewer service were extremely limited and permitting requirements led to the use of an E/One low pressure sewer system. The site is currently under construction and many of the homes in the first phase are sold.
