Clean Water solutionS for Agriculture & Horticulture
Australian growers face increasing water scarcity due to drought, vegetation loss and unreliable weather patterns, all of which can also lead to salinity increases as the water tables rise. Moerk Water leads the industry in delivering renewable energy powered water treatment solutions, including desalination systems, to the Australian agriculture & horticulture industries. Our simple, stand-alone technology systems convert any source of feedwater into fresh water for spraying or for stock. This gives our clients a reliable long-term solution that allows them to adapt to changing water conditions while mitigating the damaging effects of saline water.
Our expert engineers and scientists have the experience and expertise to understand your unique conditions and work with you to develop the right solution. Our solutions includes membrane desalination, flocculation, UV sterilisation, pH correction and iron removal. The result is water security and climate independence through reliable, on demand fit-for-purpose water provided by our hassle-free set-and-forget systems that are easy to operate. Additionally, Moerk Water systems come with the convenience of remote monitoring that allows you to keep an eye on your water supply without being onsite.

Why Farmers Pursue Water Treatment
Stories From Farmers We Work With
WATER SOURCES WE TREAT IN
AGRICULTURE & HORTICULTURE
Moerk’s water treatment technology can convert a wide range of water types and sources for agriculture & horticulture into water ready for spraying, stock or as World Health Organisation standard drinking water.
Bore water can contain high levels of minerals including sodium, calcium, magnesium, potassium, chloride, bicarbonate, and iron. This not only makes it unsafe for human and animal consumption, but also for irrigation. Moerk’s water treatment technology can turn bore water into a safe, useful asset.
Brackish water may have lower salt levels that sea water but is still unsuitable for use in agriculture or for stock to drink. Moerk’s desalination technology, encompassing reverse osmosis, provides a simple to use, reliable solution to brackish water. Our team can design and construct a system that will convert brackish water to a useful resource.
The best way to treat contaminated groundwater is to pump it through one of our specially designed groundwater treatment systems that can clean ground and surface water. The cleaned water can then be put back into the ground or stored for immediate use, which allows stakeholders to get the most out of their water assets.
Dam water, like other surface water sources, is vulnerable to contamination from ground runoff, pollution, contamination by human and animal waste as well as algal blooms. Our expert engineers can design a dam water treatment system that will enable you to use dam water safely for agriculture and stock.
Surface water, including rivers, dams and stream, is extremely vulnerable to contamination by pollutants including chemicals, bacteria, parasites and viruses. Like ground water, it can be easily treated and made safe for use by our specially designed treatment systems.
Creek water, like dam and river water, is prone to pollution from runoff, human and animal waste, chemicals, bacteria, parasites and viruses. We can design and build a treatment system to suit your specific needs and convert creek water into a clean, safe water source.
Rivers are an extremely valuable source of water for agricultural use. But they are also easily contaminated by debris, runoff, pollution, bacteria and parasites, as well as human and animal waste. We can help you to make this most of this resource through water treatment technology that will remove contaminants.
Saline water is easily treatable using one of our desalination treatment systems. Our membrane systems easily remove salt using reverse osmosis. Our engineers can help you to choose the right saline water treatment system for your needs. They are easy to transport and can be adapted to any scale.
Associated plants & systems
Our treatment plants are individually designed to meet the specific requirements to create a supply of water that is safe for drinking or use in commercial and industrial situations.
Reverse Osmosis is our Preferred Agriculture Water Treatment System
Reverse osmosis is the pre-eminent method of desalination (saline water treatment) because in almost every case it is the most economical and effective option available. If you want to produce fresh water or at a quality suitable for livestock or crops from a brackish or saline source, then reverse osmosis is the solution. The technology has existed for decades however it has become increasingly refined, cost-effective and therefore more accessible in recent years. Moerk Water’s reverse osmosis plants are consistently evolving and are innovatively designed to produce self managed and sustaining long term results.Learn More
