The WA Aboriginal Communities Essential Services program includes potable water and wastewater schemes, including wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). New and upgraded housing in communities as part of the federal government Closing the Gap initiative for indigenous Australians also requires essential services upgrade.
WISE has been able to work with Housing and Water Corporation to revise design standards from nominal values to evaluation of metered flow data and water sampling. The outcome has been fit-for-purpose infrastructure to deliver significantly reduced capital and operating cost. This has enabled upgrade of more communities under the same fixed budget.
WISE completes capacity design upgrades to World Health Organisation standards based on University of Leeds methodologies. All WWTP upgrade projects achieved Dept. of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER) Works Approvals and Health Department Approval to Construct.
New initiatives for these projects included development of Operations Manuals, operator training at handover and health warning signs in local Aboriginal language(s).
