The key objectives of this project were to improve stormwater quality and to reduce potable water consumption across Melbourne Airport managed areas. With end user demands of 180ML/yr at 100% reliability a complex coordination of critical components were required to support these requirements.
In order to achieve this, the stormwater inflows from Steeles Creek are captured, transferred via Aquatec’s raw water pump station where it is dosed and filtered through our packaged treatment plant. The filtered stormwater is then sterilized by a US EPA Approved UV unit and transferred through to the clearwater storage tank.The stored water is continuously recirculated and treated until the water is drawn out of the clearwater storage on demand unit via boosting pumps ready for the end user being Melbourne Airport and the Essendon Football Club.
This water will be subsequently used on cooling towers, toilet flushing, car wash facilities and irrigation purposes on ovals. The benefits that will be delivered to Melbourne Airport will be the enhancement of water quality and on the recycled side, the reuse of the water back into the airport will be a great benefit to the client.
