Cleveland Bay Purification Plant Capacity Upgrade Project

The Cleveland Bay Purification Plant treats a large portion of Townsville’s wastewater, which needs to meet a suitable standard before being discharged into the environment. The plant now needs further upgrading to treat larger amounts of wastewater and meet current and future demands and industry standards.

The construction contract is expected to be awarded in late April 2017, with works to commence in May 2017. The upgrades will cost $51 million — $31 million contributed by Townsville City Council and $20 million from the Queensland Government under its critical infrastructure funding program.
