• Description: Camping ground wastewater treatment plant
  • Location: Papatowai, Catlins Coast
  • Installed: 2012
  • Project type: Consent, design, build, install and commission

In partnership with the Department of Conservation, Apex Environmental was engaged from project inception.  This included consents and design through to completion of a wastewater treatment plant to allow a camping ground to reopen to tourists following the failure of the previous system.   A membrane bioreactor (MBR) was installed to reduce BOD and nitrogen levels and minimise solids levels in the discharge to the point where discharge to a protected wetland was possible.
