South Hedland Wastewater Treatment Plant

Project Overview

Ertech was contracted by the Pilbara Clearwater Alliance to upgrade the South Hedland Wastewater Treatment Plant.

Previously the recycled water was used in Port Hedland and South Hedland to irrigate the golf course, turf club and various town ovals. Upon completion of the works, the plant now has the capacity to produce 6 million litres of treated water for re-use per day, to be supplied for industrial processes, dust supression, materials handling and road construction.
