DROUIN WASTEWATER TREATEMENT PLANT

CLIENT:  Gippsland Water

PROCESS:

The Drouin WWTP is a lagoon-based plant which services the town of Drouin, located approximately 100 km east of Melbourne. Rapid growth is projected in the area requiring the capacity of the treatment plant to be augmented and, due to the buffer distance requirements associated with a larger lagoon treatment plant, it will not be possible to expand the existing mode of treatment.
