BMD saves harbour from sewage

BMD has been charged with rescuing Darwin Harbour from the 600 wave pools of raw sewage that are currently pumped into the harbour each year. The Ludmilla Waste Water Treatment Plant project will provide a much needed upgrade to the existing plant and its processes, by constructing treatment tanks and pipework, mechanical installation and commissioning, electrical and instrumental installation and commissioning and other modifications. The project also involves civil and road works. Whilst sewage will still eventually make its way into the harbour, the upgrade will ensure it passes through the plant first, undergoing extensive and advanced primary treatment before being pumped into the ocean. The BMD Industrial team have committed to engaging a high proportion of their sub-contractors and suppliers from the local Darwin area in an effort to minimise environmental impacts, as well as supporting the community they are working within. The Northern Territory government has deemed the project, one of significance as it is the final component in a major overhaul and redevelopment of the sewerage collection and treatment system for a large proportion of the Darwin area. _________________________________________________________________________________
