Waste Water Treatment Plants
Cronulla Waste Water Treatment Plant
The Cronulla Waste Water Treatment Plant is owned by the Sydney Water Corporation and serves the communities of the Cronulla-Sutherland Peninsula, including Sylvania, Como, Menai and Heathcote.
The Plant was commissioned in April 2001 and the $90 million upgrade has been completed.
The upgrade is providing far-reaching environmental and health benefits to the local area. These benefits include improved the water quality at Cronulla's local beaches and Bate Bay, opportunities for local industry to re-use some of this highly treated effluent, and meeting the requirements of local population growth.
Sydney Water contracted Bovis Lend Lease to design, construct and operate the Plant. Bovis Lend Lease formed a consortium with Degrémont and the Cronulla Waste Water Group, a joint venture between CH2Mhill and Sinclair Knight Merz.
The management of the Plant was handed back to Sydney Water in April 2003 with full compliance on all contractual obligations including process performance, operating cost verification and training of the future operations team.
