Canungra Jungle Warfare Centre – Wastewater Treatment Plant
Jul 24 2008
a new wastewater treatment plant to meet the current and emerging requirements for the expansion of the base.
The existing waste water plant, (now demolished) was a rock filter
style plant with attached growths which treat the raw sewage wastes. The old plant was in excess of 30 years old. The effluent quality from the plant was of a standard that is no longer acceptable to the Environmental Protection Agency.
However this new plant will meet the changed requirements of the
Qld EPA, and the growth in capacity required for the base expansion. The technology used in the plant is well proven and robust. The new plant utilizes an intermittently decanted, extended aeration process (AAT/IAT process) for the main plant, followed by pressure sand filters built by A1 Noblewater. The project also includes UV and chlorine disinfection of the effluent, belt pressing of the waste sludge material, installation of PLC control systems and a building for operator functions.
The new plant is of 1600 Equivalent Persons (EP) capacity; approximately 400 kilolitres per day of wastewater flows. The effluent from the plant is to Class A quality standard, per the Queensland Water Recycling Guidelines. The recycled water is suitable for irrigation and reuse on the site, and discharge to the local stream, near a pristine National Park area.
The value of the project is close to $3.2 million, completed on time and to budget, with practical completion achieved in October 2007.
The plant has been operating effectively since practical completion. It is anticipated that the final commissioning of the new plant will be
completed in early 2008.
Once the new plant achieved practical completion and fully operational, the old plant was demolished and the site cleaned up as a presentable
"state-of-the-art" wastewater treatment and recycling facility.
