Unitywater has announced that work is set to begin at its Burpengary East Wastewater Treatment Plant in May 2024, with the company contracting Ventia for the upgrade. 

The upgrade program includes new inlet works with enhanced odour control, a new bioreactor, a new clarifier, renewal of treated water disinfection systems and electrical and control system upgrades.

Unitywater’s Executive Manager Strategic Engagement, Joshua Zugajev, said, “This upgrade will deliver significant improvements in our wastewater treatment capacity to support the needs of our growing community in the region.

“Like all of our future-focused asset upgrades, we’re also making sure this program delivers positive environmental and social outcomes, by reducing nutrients released to the Caboolture River and minimising the odour produced during this essential process.”

The upgraded infrastructure is expected to significantly increase the capacity of the plant to meet the demands of the growing population and support economic growth in the surrounding areas of Narangba, Burpengary, Beachmere, Burpengary East, Deception Bay and Morayfield.

Ventia’s Group Executive Infrastructure Services, Tim Harwood, said, “We are excited to be working with Unitywater on this vital project.

“Our team is dedicated to supporting the delivery of high-quality infrastructure that meets the needs of the community and prioritises important environmental outcomes.”

Work is scheduled to commence in May 2024 and run through until late 2026, subject to weather and site conditions.

All activities will be conducted within the existing Burpengary East Wastewater Treatment Plant premises, located on Uhlmann Road, Burpengary East.
