Wide range of standard sized systems from 10 to 10,000 persons

Sewage Systems with MBR technology for stringent discharge limits or footprint concerns

  • Optional modules for strict phosphorous and/or nitrogen limits
  • Options for reuse for camp toilet flushing, dust suppression, ice road or other
  • Optional sludge treatment modules
  •  Sewage systems include inlet screening and equalization where required

Potable water systems to tackle any water source

  • Well, river, lake, brackish, seawater sources
  • Watersafe systems for Military camps and installations

Technical information

Newterra’s MBR/C technology addresses a wide range of wastewater treatment applications where high quality effluent is required, either to meet regulatory requirements or for reuse.  MBR/C targets Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD), Total Suspended Solids (TSS), Bacteria, Total Coliforms, Ammonia, Nitrogen, and Phosphorus.
The MBR/C also eliminate many pharmaceuticals from the waste stream, which is a growing concern for natural habitats and drinking water. With extensive experience with groundwater remediation, Newterra can bring solutions for emerging contaminant challenges such as PFAS and other compounds that may be present in the system effluent.

Discharge Targets (Typical Base Design)
Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) <5.0 mg/L
Total Suspended Solids (TSS)         <5.0 mg/L
Ammonia-N                                        <1.0 mg/L
Turbidity                                               <0.5 NTU
Total Phosphorus                               <0.1 mg/L
Total Nitrogen                                     <5.0 mg/L

Enhanced Nutrient Removal Design can achieve lower effluent results:
Total Phosphorus                               <0.05 mg/L
Total Nitrogen                                     <3.0 mg/L
The ultimate process configuration is highly dependent on:
    • influent concentrations
    • variability in feed strength and flow
    • desired effluent criteria depending on the ultimate receiver
    • space available
    • budget available
    • climate considerations
    • shipping contraints
    • power available


  • Oil/Gas Exploration Camps
  • Oil/Gas Downstream Facilities
  • Mining Installations
  • Power Generation Facilities
  • Construction Camps for Infrastructure
  • Military Forward Camps
  • Military Installations

Key benefits

Scaleable: Our modular systems can expand as capacity requirements change – and be redeployed at the end of a temporaty project if necessary. Developers can defer infrastructure spending by phasing in sewage treatment capacity in parallel with the phases of a project.
Reduced On-Site Construction: Modular systems are pre-plumbed, pre-wired and undergo comprehensive testing, allowing for fast installation and minimized onsite work.
Maximum Uptime: Proven, standardized components and strategic redundancy to allow continuous operation – even during maintenance procedures.
Minimal Maintenance: Air scouring and periodic membrane relaxation prevent fouling; chemical cleaning is reduced over hollow fiber membranes.
Operator-Friendly: Our ground-level module removal system is good example of the design considerations we incorporate for easy servicing and improved safety.


  • newtN SCADA: Systems feature sophisticated controls and advanced telemetry for 24/7 monitoring, diagnostics and control from anywhere.
  • Sludge: We offer integrated sludge dewatering; filter cakes are suitable for incineration, landfill or use as fertilizer.
