A Design and Construct contract was recently awarded to True Water by QLD National Parks for the replacement of a commercial wastewater treatment plant for the Eurong Rangers Station. The location of the project presented logistical challenges including restricted and intermittent access to site, and limited availability of trades and utilities.
Due to the seasonal occupancy fluctuations, wastewater flows vary greatly throughout the year. World Heritage listed Fraser Island requires strict environmental standards be adhered to. The treatment plant is located in close proximity to the Pacific Ocean and is required to perform consistently under adverse climatic conditions. Robust and consistent treatment performance was essential to meet the strict environmental requirements for Fraser Island.
True Water designed a wastewater management system utilising a Kubota HC-Z sewage treatment plant with the ability to manage variations in flow capacities and quality. Importantly, the plant selected uses simple yet reliable processes to achieve performance and reliability outcomes. The project delivery required a strong logistics strategy, easily mobilised components, thorough planning, and an experienced team to complete.
