The Pensar Utilities Water team were engaged by Seqwater to perform major upgrades to Mudgereeba Water Treatment Plant to improve the existing sludge handling system. These upgrades were designed to reduce the discharge of sludge to sewer and provide a buffering capacity in the event of high NTU events and chemical spills. Project works consisted of;

  • Full redesign from project award including design and construction of a new process system to include a new supernatant¬†return pumping station
  • Installation of floating decant arms to backwash recovery tanks
  • Construction of a new 6m concrete supernatant pumping station including piling works
  • Install overflows to the environment
  • Concrete refurbishment of backwash recovery tanks, including rake refurbishment
  • Procure and install all new instrumentation ensuring new processes work efficiently
