Palembang starts US$82.8m wastewater treatment plant construction (Indonesia)

Work has commenced on the construction of a new wastewater treatment plant in Palembang. Palembang lies on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Its Musi River is heavily polluted.

Local construction company PT Pembangunan Perumahan has partnered with Australia’s McConnell Dowell to deliver the project. The US$82.8 million project will provide clean water to around 100,000 residents. It’s hoped that the wastewater treatment plant will greatly reduce pollution levels.
