Tuross Heads Country Club

  • Tuross Heads Country Club

One of the oldest most established floating wetlands in NSW

The golf course was given unlimited access to secondary treated wastewater, but needed to make sure that stored wastewater, at a prime location within the golf course next to urban development. Problems with blue green algae and odours were the drivers for the installation of floating wetlands. No odours or BGA since FTW installed.

Purpose: Control algae within lined pond used to hold treated municipal wastewater prior to irrigation on golf course. Note the green water at the time of installation.

Scope of works: A 125m2 FTW installed in a 300m2 lined storage pond.

Issues: Initial design for anchoring become unsuitable for a fluctuating storage pond. Rafts re configured into a consolidated island.
