Brisbane Caboolture Aquifer Alliance

The BCAA project continues to forge ahead and is achieving great success. After agreeing a Target Cost in early March, 2007, the BCAA team commissioned its first plant at Sunnybank in June, 2007, delivering the first new water supply for Brisbane in over 20 years.

The team has continued to deliver its challenging programme of 6 water treatment plants at an amazing pace, with 3 more plants at Runcorn, Algester and Chandler now completed also and delivering excellent high quality potable water into Brisbane's distribution network.

The remaining Brisbane plant at Forest Lake is proceeding well with commissioning now commenced and the team remains on programme to deliver all plants during 2007.

The Banksia Beach plant at Bribie Island will incorporate advanced treatment using ozone and biologically active carbon to ensure substantially improved water quality for the Bribie Island community while also improving reliability of supply for Caboolture Shire residents overall.

The commitment of the BCAA Team and their contribution towards the drought relief effort has been absolutely first rate and the resulting treatment plants are a testament to the dedication of this quality team.
