Queensland Urban Utilities

Aratula Regional Lagoon Enhancements Project

When the Aratula Sewage Treatment Plant came into Queensland Urban Utilities’ possession in 2012, it was struggling to meet compliance regulations. Committed to improving the plant by 2013, the organisation employed a new ‘constructed wetland’ technology. The plant was commissioned in January 2013 and is already performing beyond expectations.
