Finalist: Water Services Award
Queensland Urban Utilities (B)
In 2015, Queensland Urban Utilities’ (QUU) Flood Resilience Program delivered approximately $22 million worth of infrastructure, which will help to reduce flood-related impacts on the environment, economy and community.
The program aimed to provide flood resilience by flood-proofing selected assets at the Oxley Creek, Bundamba, Fairfield, Esk and Karana Downs Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs) and 20 STPs within the Brisbane and Ipswich area.
The program delivered on a number of benefits and environmental outcomes, including:
- Reduced environmental harm in the event of a flood
- Faster recovery times to limit the negative impact on the environment and the community
- Provision of a more dynamic response capability for QUU.
