What's this project all about?

The Ulverstone Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) is servicing the catchments of Ulverstone, Gawler, West Ulverstone and Penguin. The plant was constructed in 1983 and was designed to treat primarily domestic sewage.

Performance monitoring of the existing plant has shown that the clarifier process has reached capacity. Process upgrades including a new clarifier, modernised pumps and a new sludge de-watering facility will bring long term benefits to the area through the improved efficiency of the plant.

Construction works began early April and are well under way, currently the focus is civil works preparing for the installation of the new clarifier.
