Priority Sewerage Program Sewage Treatment Plants Phase 3

Building the Economy

Sydney Water and NSW Public Works worked collaboratively to assess an alternative option for private sector construction of sewage treatment plants for the Priority Sewerage Program, a program that provides sewerage systems to growth communities. NSW Public Works proved their flexible design would offer economic benefits to the project in the order of a 30% lower capital cost, along with proven and reliable technology and capacity for remote operation and monitoring. The new treatment plant design also provides economic benefits to the broader community by allowing for future urban development of the areas for both housing and commercial use.
