Ground Water Treatment Systems

Our Solution for Ground Water

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.


Ground Water is water that exists beneath the surface of the earth, making it less likely to be polluted than surface water as it is harder for contaminants to reach. Additionally, as the water moves below ground it is filtered by the surrounding rocks.

Unlike surface water, ground water is protected from evaporation, making it a more reliable source. Wells and bores are two examples of groundwater supplies and they often serve as a water source for communities, agriculture, horticulture, resorts and industry. Contaminants of concern in groundwater include heavy metals (which dissolve into water in low oxygen conditions) and biological material like bacteria and viruses (which can enter groundwater by seeping through the soil).

Groundwater is generally cheaper to treat than surface water but more expensive to pump to the point of use. The treatment it requires depends on the contaminants that are present, which is why a full water analysis is required when designing a treatment system. Moerk Water has a range of treatment options available for treating groundwater including Membrane Desalination, iron and mineral removal and UV sterilisation.

Most Common Plants & Systems for Treating Ground Water

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.

Clarification Filtration

Clarification Filtration is a chemical/physical method to reduce the dirt load in the water. Fine particles below a certain size will pass through standard filters. Following clarification filtration, depending on the water quality required, the water can be further purified to reduce the salt load or remove any other contaminants of concern.

Iron Removal Systems

Moerk Water’s Iron Removal Systems remove iron from any water source, eliminating concerns about iron bacteria contamination, corrosion, and scaling. Our iron removal systems utilise aeration mechanisms and filters with an automated backwash to reliably removing iron from the water while keeping the systems hands-free and operating costs as low as possible.


Typically when we think of reverse osmosis we imagine large facilities that underpin a city’s water supply or small under sink units. However, in our context, we have adapted these membrane systems to be both transportable and optimised for whatever scale various agricultural and commercial concerns require.


Moerk’s water treatment technology can convert a wide range of water types, including sea water, brackish water and contaminated water into safe drinking water that meets World Health Organisation water quality standards.
