The Farley Wastewater Treatment Works (WWTE) was recently upgraded to reduce nutrient loads discharged to the Fishery Creek, which is a tributary of Wallis Creek and the Hunter River. The upgrade will also increase capacity to meet population growth and will enable water reuse.
Hydroflux Epco was selected to provide fine screen technology to protect the most critical part of the new treatment plant, the MBR process.
