Design and Construct STP
True Water has provided a temporary wastewater treatment solution for the Australian Defence Force at Camp Birt. The project forms part of the Army Aboriginal Community Assistance Programme (AACAP) which began in 1997 to assist indigenous communities. This is achieved by providing vital infrastructure including housing, essential services and health facilities.
The project required a wastewater management system with capabilities for demobilisation while maintaining high treatment quality objectives. This was further complicated with the addition of low to medium volumes of trade waste included within the influent flows. True Water was required to work closely with the Australian Defence Force, associated contractors and local trades to meet delivery and operational requirements.
True Water manufactured and delivered a dual HCZ System with installation above ground to ensure future demobilisation posed no risk to people, the environment or the Infrastructure. Specification and coordination assistance was provided to ensure suitable pre-treatment technologies were included upstream of the Treatment Plant ensuring operational targets were met.
The wastewater treatment system was pre manufactured and freighted to site for installation by members of the Australian Defence Force under the guidance of the True Water team.
Camp Birt is established as part of AACAP to support remote indigenous towns and deliver community infrastructure.
The Australian Defence Force required an above ground installation for ease of remobilisation to a future site.
The sewage treatment plants were installed above ground for ease of future demobilistation and relocation without risk.
