Dampier Wastewater Treatment Plant – Capacity Definition & Upgrade
Dampier wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) was constructed in 1961 and upgraded in 1969. The treatment process includes Imhoff tanks (anaerobic digestors), tickling filters, clarifier and disinfection for recycled water use. Rio Tinto required updated process and hydraulic flow diagrams to define the plant capacity with respect to urban development objectives.
WISE completed engineering calculations, drawings and sewage flow analysis to design interim upgrades to the WWTP which could enable urban development while long term planning for the WWTP was conducted. Sewer flow monitoring was completed during cyclone season to capture infiltration quantification.
