Cedar Grove Environmental Centre wins Australian Water Association Infrastructure Project Innovation Award

Cedar Grove Enviro Centre wins award

FOLLOWING two recent industry awards for Logan Water's Cedar Grove Environmental Centre, the project received its third award in a row last month.

The project won the Australian Water Association Infrastructure Project Innovation Award (Metro) at the Queensland Water Awards.

The awards recognise the contribution of the association's members for their inspiring leadership and innovative research, programs and infrastructure projects.

Cedar Grove Environmental Centre is the first wastewater treatment plant of its kind in Queensland.

Unlike conventional wastewater treatment plants, the CGEC benefits the Logan River and its catchment through record low levels of nutrients in reclaimed water, and catchment restoration projects.

The site is also a centre for research and a community recreation reserve.

Logan City Council's former acting director for road and water infrastructure Daryl Ross was also presented with a trophy for AWA's 2020 Australian Water Professional of the Year earlier in the year.

Among his many achievements he helped create the first non-statutory regional plan for South East Queensland, led the strategic response to the Millennium Drought and transformed two water businesses.
