LMWQCC Proving Study

  • ASpect’s Client: ActewAGL (now ACTEW Water)
  • Head Client: ACTEW Corporation
  • Plant Configuration: MLE
  • Plant Size: 450,000 EP
  • Project Value: $56M (ASpect Fee $3k)
  • Project Duration:  December 2010 to April 2011

Proving study for Stage II upgrade of the 450,000 EP LMWQCC (MLE) for ActewAGL (now ACTEW Water) (ACT).

ASpect was the process designer for the LMWQCC Secondary Treatment Augmentation.  This was a significant amplification and performance upgrade for the existing plant.  Soon after commissioning, unusually high rainfall events in the ACT generated flows greater than the design capacity.  ASpect was engaged by ActewAGL to analyse the performance of LMWQCC during this event and use the performance data to determine whether the upgraded plant met the design intent.  ASpect was able to confirm that the secondary treatment plant exceeded the predicted design capacity.
