Install Self Contained Sewerage System

Customer: St Catherines Primary School

Location: Proserpine, QLD

Specifications & Features:

Dowdens Pumping and Water Treatment have successfully supplied, installed and commissioned a 48,000L sewerage system for St Catherines Primary School in Proserpine, Queensland.

Project's Supply Scope:

  • Supply 48,000L Aquatec Emergency Storage Vessel for existing sewerage system
  • Dowdens Pumping and Water Treatment in conjunction with the projects designers redesigned the original scope of 3 x 16,000L concrete tanks sitting at 3.5m deep with pour in situ concrete bases
  • This avoided an expensive excavation and dewatering of the tank pit where the the water table sits at 1.5m


Key Features:
  • 48,000L tank is a 'self cleansing' unit
  • The tank is a 1.85m diameter x 18m long fiberglass tank weighing less than 2 Tonnes
  • As a result of the smaller tank diameter the site excavation only needed to be 2.3m deep, rather than the original 3.8m
  • The tank was held down by a specially inhouse engineered concrete ballast which was poured on top of it
