IT might not be your usual mid-week day out but residents are invited to learn more about the technology that processes the region’s waste water at the official opening of the newly upgraded Camden Haven sewage treatment plant.
The $13 million augmentation project has increased the capacity of the sewage treatment plant to cater for the current and future capacity of the Camden Haven area.
The plant will also have significant positive environmental benefits, as the new state of the art technology will produce an effluent of extremely high quality.
The new infrastructure will be open to the public on Thursday, 3rd May 2012 between 9am and 3pm with an official opening conducted by Council’s Administrator Neil Porter at 9:30am.
Tours of the facility will be conducted by Council staff. Members of the public are invited to join a tour which will provide an up close and technical explanation of the technology used at the upgraded facility. It will also be an opportunity for residents to ‘Think Beyond The Sink’ and the impact of unwanted waste, such as cotton buds, paints, chemicals, fats and oils, in the region’s stormwater and sewerage systems.
Bookings are not required. Access to the site is via the tip road at Dunbogan and carparking will be available on site. Tour participants must wear closed in shoes.
