The original sewage treatment plant built in 2006, had an estimated capacity of 150 persons with a peak load of 200 persons. By 2020, tourism growth meant Ballina Beach Village expected to service up to 500 guests during holiday periods, putting enormous strain on the original system.
Known for innovative design, Aerofloat’s engineers developed a system that adapted to the infrastructure at the site. The design included some additional equipment and upgrades to the existing facilities to minimise capital expenditure and alleviate the need for an entirely new treatment system.
Ballina Beach Village continued to realise the asset of the existing plant which minimised upgrade costs. The fast-tracked project ensured that the Ballina Beach Village sewage treatment plant was operating smoothly before the next peak holiday period.
Aerofloat was engaged by Ballina Beach Village to design a sewage treatment plant that would meet its increased growth.
“Aerofloat’s unique sewage treatment plant design and after sales service has allowed us to meet our growing capacity needs and ensure a low-maintenance, long-term solution.”

The pre-existing sewage treatment plant at Ballina Beach Village was installed in 2006 to meet a capacity of 150 persons, with an allowance for short-term population peaks of around 200 persons. However, the significant visitor growth during the Christmas, New Year and Easter periods meant the plant required an upgrade to meet demand.
Comparative to residential areas, the average daily flow per person in the holiday facility was less, but it needed to allow for peak loads at certain times of the day.
