Sydney Water has completed the $46 million odour and corrosion abatement project at Cronulla Wastewater Treatment Plant in NSW.
The upgrade aims to significantly reduce the risk of odours impacting on the surrounding community and improve the reliability and extend the economic life of the existing infrastructure at the plant.
NSW Minister for Natural Resources, Lands, and Water, Kevin Humphries, said: “This investment is an example of the NSW Government’s commitment to improving infrastructure across the state.”
Member for Cronulla, Mark Speakman, said: “The installation of new covers over the primary sedimentation tanks of the plant in addition to the construction of four new Biotrickling Filters will have a major positive impact on odour which is an excellent result for residents and visitors to the Cronulla area”.
Sydney Water will test the effectiveness of the odour and corrosion management project over the summer.
