PAPA Pumps help improve water quality for rivers and streams
PAPA pumps can be used throughout sensitive river / stream catchments to help reduce diffuse pollution from livestock and fertilisers as well as man made activities as well as helping to manage flood water.
Solution - Sustainable Flood Water management; Landowners & Governments can set several inexpensive PAPA pump installations to start pumping water when sudden rains cause dangerously high water with the risk of flooding downstream.
The PAPA pump will move some of this flood water long distances to storage- whether natural or man made. This water can then be used in drought, helping replace expensive mains so saving Communities money as well as reduce damaging river / stream abstraction in drought. At the same time this can help reduce costly downstream flooding.

Solution - Mine/ Rubbish Dump Outfall Management; Decommisioned mines and rubbish dumps can be a major source of water pollution unless proper systems are put in place. Often diffuse water seeps from mines in many remote locations making capture and treatment expensive.
When several PAPA pumps are installed around 'at risk' streams or drains from these dumps or mines, a large percentage of polluted water and leachate can be pumped to a central location for treatment. Each Papa pump installation of course works 24/7 with no power needed and therefore represents a cheap way to deal with many diffuse important environmental problems which are too expensive to collect & treat any other way.
Solution- Offstream Watering of livestock; to prevent life threatening water borne diseases and preserve water quality, livestock are no longer permitted into a water course to drink. Preserving the river banks helps reduce Fertiliser and other chemical 'run-off' whic further damages water quality.
100's of PAPA Pumps are using by Environmental Regulators and ordinary farmers to move water for no cost long distances to troughs and watering stations away from at risk water courses. PAPA Pump powered systems also help reduce diesel/electric pumping bills for the farmer which helps underlines the message that conservation is worth is.
