EPCO Australia was awarded the contract for the refurbishment of the Secondary Clarifier No 1,  an 18m diameter clarifier mechanism as part of the upgrade to Unity Water’s Brendale Wastewater Treatment Plant.

The upgrade will increase the plant’s capacity to cater for the growing region and will improve the site’s odour conditions for surrounding residents and customers.

The current works are Stage 3 of the Upgrade, which includes essential improvements to the existing plant and also pipe interconnection works to provide for future population growth, help maintain water quality in the South Pine River, and bring about significant savings in capital expenditure for Unity Water.

This project was necessitated by the fact that the Brendale Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) was nearing capacity.
