Effluent Treated to the Highest Degree for Waiheke Island
Waiheke Island is a pristine, natural environment in the Hauraki Gulf. Due to its close proximity to Auckland, Waiheke Island sees an influx of visitors over the holiday season with up to 45,000 visitors per day.
To handle the wastewater produced by this influx, Apex Water provided a Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) plant capable of treating the water to very high standards so that it could be discharged with no adverse effects to the environment.
Due to the difficulties of constructing on the island, the mechanical and electrical elements of the plant were prefabricated in two 40 foot shipping containers and delivered to site ready to operate.
Despite the highly variable wastewater loads the plant is delivering effluent well within specification and ensures only crystal clear effluent enters the bay.
