The facility had to be flexible to accommodate significant variations in population in Picton from permanent residents in winter to high summer tourist populations.

The associated system included the construction of a new pumping station, making use of existing infrastructure at the location of the existing WWTP (downhill), including the installation of two force mains to pump the raw wastewater up the hill towards the new facility.
