Council: Burdekin Shire Council
Fund: Regional Capital Fund
Category: Water/Sewerage/Waste Infrastructure
Burdekin will benefit from a more cost efficient, effective and integrated sewerage network when switchboards are upgraded and centrally controlled.
The project will:
upgrade 26 remote sewage pump station switchboards and two sewage treatment plant switchboards and connect them to a centrally controlled SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) telemetry system
provide a network of pump stations with improved reliability, remote and local site control, energy efficiencies and ultimately greater protection of local residents, the environment and the Great Barrier Reef.
There are 12 pump stations in Ayr, four in Brandon and 10 in Home Hill along with two sewage treatment plants. Upgrades will improve the overall reliability and performance of system, leading to improved effluent discharge quality to the environment and allowing for further economic expansion within the immediate region.
