Scope of work
The Cleveland Bay Purification Plant treats a large portion of Townsville’s wastewater, covering approximately 70% of the population. The plant required a major upgrade to handle current and future wet weather flow rates and to meet industry standards for discharge quality. The Cleveland Bay area is a conservation park zone and home to significant species including dugong, marine turtles, dolphins and hump back whales.
The existing concrete outfall pipeline had deteriorated beyond its useful life and Pacific Marine Group were engaged during an early tender involvement phase to provide planning advice to minimise the environmental impacts in the marine park due to the outfall construction and plant bypass.
Replace the 240m marine outfall pipeline during the six month period allowed under the environmental permit for the plant bypass.
