Suncoast Pump Station

Suncoast Pump Station commenced construction in late 2013 as part of the Maroochydore Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) Waste Activated Sludge Thickener (WAST) facilities Upgrade. A new pump station with 3 x 132 kW pumps for water and sewer utilities pumping to Fishermans Road STP Maroochydore was completed in 2014 at a value of $1.9M. This was a major undertaking to transfer sewage from the communities of South Marcoola, Mudjimba, Pacific Paradise and Twin Waters to the Maroochydore STP and the construction of the Suncoast Pump Station made this possible. In 1988 the Suncoast Sewage Treatment Plant was operating at full capacity and future expansion was considered due to expected population growth. At that time, it was estimated a cost of $34M for expansion however, the custodian of the Sunshine Coast water and waste infrastructure realised that the building of a six kilometre pipeline was an innovative and efficient solution which included 820 metres under the Maroochy River and connected to existing sewerage network of suburbs north of the river to Maroochydore STP would save around $20M in capital works and reduce the amount of treatment plants in the region.
