Owned and operated by the Australian Indigenous Land Corporation, Home Valley Station is one of the most remote outstations in Australia. With recent expansions to the resort sewage treatment requirements have increased. As a result, True Water were engaged to provide a scalable treatment solution to meet wastewater needs.
Although the 800,000km2 cattle station is isolated deep in the Kimberley and is 3 hours from the nearest town of Kununurra, they can have up to 800 visitors a day. Everyone using the Gibb River road is likely to stop in at Home Valley and grab a meal or use the toilets, so the reliability of the Kubota plant is of key importance for the isolated site.
To allow for the future, wastewater infrastructure was required to be scalable, allowing capital investment to match resort growth, and robust, ensuring a long operational life in harsh climatic conditions. Seasonal occupancy rates required the wastewater treatment system to be capable of managing highly variable flows while maintaining treatment performance.
Stage 1 of the sewage treatment plant involved the design and installation of four commercial Kubota HC-Z Treatment Plant modules with a combined treatment capacity of 40m3 per day. The Treatment Plant was installed below ground to regulate temperature, improve visual amenity and eliminate any impacts the extreme climate may have on the infrastructure. Stage 2 included the addition of three Kubota HC-Z Treatment plant modules bringing the total daily treatment capacity to 70m3.
“Having worked in a remote environment in the East Kimberley, it is essential to have reliable and efficient services, the Wastewater Management System installed by True Water Australia is a state of the art Kubota plant that not only allows piece of mind, it is very low maintenance and the most effective wastewater management system I have worked with over a 20year career in remote resorts around Australia.
