Queanbeyan-Palarang Regional Council (QPRC) is investing in further infrastructure upgrades aligned with sustainable and drought resilient development. In December, 2020 QPRC began providing recycled water to the community of Googong, NSW. Now, QPRC has turned its attention to the nearby township of Bungendore.
Aquacell is working with head contractor Gongues Constructions to upgrade Bungendore sewage treatment plant (STP) to produce recycled water. Aquacell will complete the process design, along with the integrated equipment supply required to deliver the recycled water plant, with the civil scope being executed by Gongues. The project will be delivered across two stages, with the first stage required to produce 900,000L/day of recycled water. The second stage will double the capacity, with the timeline for the second stage dependent on population growth.
Recycled water will be supplied through the existing recycled water network, which the community of Bungendore will use for non-potable applications such as irrigation of public parks and sports fields.
Aquacell is pleased to be involved on a project that has been designed with water resilience, sustainable development, and community amenity front-of-mind.
