Formosa Country Club, Wastewater Scheme
Client: Russell Property Group Ltd
Location: Beachlands, Auckland
Project Value: Undisclosed
Sector: Commercial/Industrial, 3 Waters
Formosa Golf Resort and Country Club is one of New Zealand’s premier golf destinations set on a coastal course with panoramic views of Waiheke Island, Rangitoto and the Hauraki Gulf.
GWE was retained by the company to obtain a renewal of a resource consent for the treatment and disposal of domestic wastewater from the golf club, hotel and associated facilities. This work was a part of a response to enforcement action by Auckland Council due to poor performance of the installed treatment plant and disposal system. The outcome was a remediated design of the wastewater treatment plant and land disposal scheme using
pressure compensating dripper irrigation that was located within the golf course. GWE carried out a process review and upgrade to the existing wastewater treatment plant.
Once the design was completed, GWE prepared the assessment of environmental effects (AEE) from the activities and successfully applied for a new resource consent for wastewater treatment and disposal on site.
