Dungog WWTW Upgrade - QMF Construction

QMF was awarded a concrete works package by Monodelphous Engineering to complete various works on the Dungog Waste Water Treatment Works located at Short St, Dungog.

The Dungog Wastewater Treatment Works (WWTW) was commissioned in 1938 and except for the construction of a storage dam has not been upgraded since that time. Hunter Water acquired the plant from Dungog Council in 2008. The plant is now aging and requires a substantial upgrade and improvements to ensure it will meet the needs of the community into the future.

Hunter Water is planning to upgrade the Dungog Wastewater Treatment Works (WWTW) to ensure capacity for future population growth through until 2040. This includes deciding how best to upgrade the plant’s physical infrastructure and how to manage the effluent (treated wastewater) from the plant.

Scope of works on this project included but was not limited to:

  • Excavation
  • Assorted concrete works
  • Chemical delivery bund
  • Pipe supports
  • Hardstand
  • Bollards

Other aspects of the project included working within a tight construction program to meet deadlines prior to Christmas, working within a live plant, working and adapting program to accommodate extreme weather conditions.

Works expected to be completed: March 2019
