Wellcamp Airport Business Park, Toowoomba, Qld

Toowoomba Wellcamp Airport, constructed over 2012-14, was Australia’s first privately funded public airport and the first major greenfield airport built in Australia in over 50 years.

In 2014, Urban Water Solutions was engaged by Kehoe Meyers to develop a pressure sewerage servicing strategy for the Wellcamp Business Park and airport.  The pressure sewerage system was to service the airport terminal building, surrounding industrial units and would receive flows from aircraft waste.  It also needed to be flexible to service the 540ha catchment during its staged development.

The final design incorporated a dual pipe system allowing flexibility in future operation and to optimise scouring velocities and minimise sewage detention times throughout the multi-staged development.
