Queensland, global water leader

Queensland’s Bundamba Advanced Water Treatment Plant (AWTP) was named “Water Project of the Year” at the Global Water Awards in London last week.

Thiess/ Black and Veatch in an Alliance with the Queensland Government Department of Infrastructure received the award which recognises the water or wastewater project, commissioned in 2007, that represents the most significant contribution to water technology and environmental protection.

John Willmott, Thiess Executive Manager for Infrastructure Queensland and Alliance Leadership Team member said the award is a testament to the outstanding commitment of the Thiess/ Black and Veatch team to deliver a world-class project.

“Being nominated and recognised by the industry makes this award important as our international peers have recognised the quality of our work and the exceptional circumstances we were operating under to deliver this project in record time,” said Mr Willmott.

The Bundamba AWTP was one of four short listed for this award, the others also short listed were Lake Pleasant Water Treatment Plan in Arizona, Orange Country Groundwater Replenishment Project in California and Plazxow 11 Treatment Plant in Poland.

The Bundamba AWTP is a core component of the Queensland Government’s $2.4 billion Western Corridor Recycled Water (WCRW) Project. It is the first of 3 AWTPs to be constructed under the largest recycled water scheme in Australia.

The Bundamba plant is already helping to take pressure off South East Queensland’s water supply with the capacity to recycle up to 66 mega litres of water per day.
