West Haughton Denitrification Bioreactor
Case study type
Reef Trust Phase 5
The objective of this project is to install a denitrification bioreactor at the end of a sugar cane paddock and rehabilitate a small wetland to act as a secondary treatment process.
The proposed benefits would be to reduce the amount of nitrates from irrigated tail water entering watercourses that lead into the Great Barrier Reef.
