Glendhu Bay Wastewater Treatment

Wastewater Treatment Plant and Land Dispersal Design

Project Description
Glendhu Bay is home to a large Holiday Park which has a great influx of visitors during the summer months. To meet this high peaking seasonal demand, careful consideration of the design and operation of a new wastewater treatment plant needed to be made.

Services Provided
Given Fluent Solution’s considerable experience in this area we were employed to investigate and develop a wastewater treatment solution to meet the challenging issues imposed by this site for both the current and future demands.

Specific services included:

  • Investigations and determination of the range of wastewater flows
  • Evaluation of suitable treatment technologies
  • Formation of Design/Build tender documentation
  • Tendering and Contract award
  • Contract administration and construction observation
  • As-built drawings and O&M Manuals
  • Performance Verification Testing

Challenges
As wastewater treatment requires a significant biological process step, designing a system able to cope with very high and very low biological loadings creates a significant challenge.  Careful selection and design of the process has resulted in a very efficient and robust scheme.
