Central Queensland’s Livingstone Shire Council has announced the successful tender for construction of the $6.6 million Emu Park Sewage Treatment Plant upgrade project.

Liquetek was awarded the tender to oversee the project.

The project includes upgrades to the Emu Park facility’s aeration and control system and dewatering processes, as well as replacement of the main sewage treatment tanks.

The $6.6 million capital works project is jointly funded by Council and the Queensland Government, which has committed $4 million through its Local Government Grants and Subsidies Program.

Livingstone Shire Council’s portfolio holder for Water, Waste Management, and the Environment, Councillor Andrea Friend, said the project offered substantive benefits to local ratepayers.

“These upgrades will provide better control over the biological, chemical and dewatering processes, and ensure the treatment plant has sufficient growth capacity for the next ten years,” Ms Friend said.

“Improved aeration and sludge management along with enhanced process controls are significant components of operating our wastewater treatment plants and crucial to meeting environmental licence requirements.

“The upgrade also means Council can continue supporting local sporting groups as recycled water from the plant is used on the adjacent golf course and sports fields.

“Liquitek has a proven track-record delivering projects of a similar scale across Australia and understands the technology required to upgrade our plant in Emu Park.

“I would like to thank the Queensland Government for their support of this project.”

The Emu Park upgrades are scheduled for completion sometime in 2024.
