Remote Tourism Park Needed Scalable, Reliable Solution


The cabins and store at the Wirib Tourism Park in the Northern Territory of Australia were served by an aerated wastewater treatment system (AWTS) that was aging, too small for peak flows, and unable to handle the high-strength sewage. This resulted in untreated wastewater being dispersed not far from a local creek, creating health and environmental risks. The territorial EPA issued a notice to the park custodians that they must address the failing AWTS or risk having the park closed.


With plans to expand the park in the near future, the custodians needed a reliable system that could be installed in phases. Due to the project’s remote location, they also needed a system that was easy to operate and could be monitored remotely. They contracted with ENVIRA Holdings, which chose to incorporate an Orenco® AdvanTex® Treatment System because it satisfied all requirements and could meet stringent treatment levels, despite high-strength wastewater and extreme variations in flow.
