Lower Molongolo Water Quality Control Centre

LMWQCC is Australia’s largest inland wastewater treatment plant.  Laura Fuhrman, Senior Treatment Process Engineer, will explain the various forms of physical, chemical and biological treatment that are employed to produce high quality effluent, and explain some of the challenges being faced with renewing infrastructure at a brownfields site.

LMWQCC’s treatment process ensures that water discharged into the Molonglo River will not affect the environment. Treated water from LMWQCC plays an important role in keeping local rivers flowing and supporting aquatic life, especially during dry periods.  During dry periods, treated water from LMWQCC can provide up to 100 per cent of the total flow of the Molonglo and Murrumbidgee Rivers. Due to this significant contribution to local river systems, maintaining water quality and the effectiveness of the treatment processes is a high priority.
