Mabuiag Island Torres Straight Sewage Treatment Plant

EPCO Australia recently completed the installation of a new Rotating Biological Contactor (RBC) type wastewater treatment plant for the Mabuiag Island community. The contract also included the provision of Certificate III training for the plant operators. The new plant is based on the very successful Masig Island and Darnley Island wastewater treatment plant designs undertaken by the company. This robust and reliable RBC process is intrinsically focussed on the reduction of nutrients from the process stream with particular attention to reducing the nitrate concentrations of the treated effluent being discharged to the inshore ocean environment.
