Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC) Councillors recently inspected the Sewerage Treatment Plants (STP) at Quirindi and Werris Creek for an update on the planned upgrades that will progress through 2018.
Quirindi STP upgrade is now stepping into the next phase with the engagement of consultants to undertake the detailed design of the upgrade.
Prior to the engagement of consultants, LPSC staff had met with the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) to consult the design concept before proceeding. Council received qualified agreement for its concept.
Work has now commenced on the design with the work being carried out by Hunter H2O.
The biological sludge reduction process is continuing at Werris Ck STP. LPSC water services staff have refined the application method of the agent to become an efficient process, saving costs.
Planning for the future upgrade concept for Werris Creek STP was also outlined to the EPA during the Quirindi STP meeting. LPSC’s proactive consultation on these issues with the EPA were well received.
LPSC Director Engineering Services, Warren Faulkner, explains the plan for the multmillion dollar upgrade of the Quirindi STP to Councillors and staff during an inspection of the facility.
