Effluent & Irrigation
Effluent & Irrigation was founded by Marty Forster in 1998, originally starting out as a contract business for cleaning ponds. The team quickly identified the farmer's need for help when it came to installing and servicing effluent systems, adding this to the bow of Effluent & Irrigation's Services.
As the company grew in size and demand, so too did the company structure. It evolved into what is now known as 'Effluent & Irrigation Design' in 2002 to meet the market need for independent solutions. The market was slowly being saturated with many effluent system options and there was a need for an independent consultancy service that would analyse the specific needs of the farm and its process, and then design the ideal system to suit the land and the style of farming.
