The Challenge/ Expand the Beechworth prison to house an additional 60 prisoners and redevelop a drainage system with the capacity to safely reuse wastewater.

Our Solution/ In order to capture wastewater for treatment, our design included the installation of a Blackwater Treatment system. The initial treatment utilised anaerobic and aerobic systems, followed by ultra-filtration for the final treatment and removal of nutrients, E. Coli and Viruses. The resultant treated water is of Class A standard and EPA approved to use onsite for landscape irrigation and food crops for the inmates.
