Pulgul Sewerage Plant Upgrade
With the plant near capacity, the Fraser Coast Regional Council will move ahead with plans to upgrade the Pulgul Sewerage Treatment Plant.
The sewerage plant upgrade will allow for the region’s future growth and expand its recycled water reuse scheme.
The next stage of the project is to develop a Recycled Water Strategy and concept design plans. An initial estimate of the total project is $66 million including $9 million to expand the reuse scheme. Council currently uses the recycled water to irrigate 500 hectares of trees. It is also used by farmers for irrigation.
After community engagement and feedback it was decided the best option was to upgrade the Pulgul Sewerage Treatment Plant and build a new outfall offshore from the Marina.
