About this Project
The award-winning, five-star Jean-Michel Cousteau Fiji Islands Resort is one of the most renowned vacation destinations in the South Pacific. Located on the island of Vanua Levu on 17 acres of a coconut plantation and surrounded by the waters of Savusavu Bay the resort is situated in a sensitive environmental setting adjacent to pristine coral reefs. To protect the reefs, Passport Resorts, the owners, retained us the design and supervise the construction of an advanced wastewater treatment and reuse system for the resort. The installed treatment system uses a two-stage trickling filter and two-stage constructed wetland pond system to achieve tertiary level treatment of the wastewater, reducing carbon, nitrogen and suspended solids to less than 10 mg/L. Treated wastewater is used for landscape irrigation on the property.
