CONTAMINATED ENVIRONMENTS

Locally owned and operated in Melbourne, East West Dive and Salvage is uniquely qualified to handle contaminated diving across Australia. Specialising in all aspects of contaminated diving, including both sewage and effluent diving, our experienced and professional team is available to mobilise at any time, even on short notice.

We efficiently and effectively complete works in contaminated environments, such as polluted waters, Sewage Treatment Plants (STP), Waste Water Treatment Plants (WWTP) and water with questionable quality or contaminates.

With at least one diving team usually working somewhere in Australia on any given day, we are able to offer a service to conduct works in contaminated environments working to the strict AS/NZS standards.

Making use of Kirby Morgan Superlights, as well as full contamination suits, we offer a truly complete service. All our equipment is fully water tested prior to use and is disinfected to the highest possible standards upon completion of the job.

Contaminated diving, or as some call it 'poo diving' is a cost-effective and practical alternative to isolating, emptying, cleaning, and disinfecting contaminated areas. Because this costly and impractical approach is often impossible, our contaminated diving service has a wide range of applications.

Our divers can safely enter contaminated environments and carry out a wide array of tasks, such as:

  • Airlifting and dredging
  • Inspections of areas with zero visibility, which cannot be viewed using ROVs
  • Installation and replacement of equipment
  • Measurements and surveys
  • Repairs and maintenance of mixers, aerators, diffusers, gates and other TP facilities
  • Search and recovery dives
  • And more
