To meet SPP pollutant reduction targets for this commercial warehouse project in Garbutt, Townsville, Glynn Tucker Consulting Engineers specified the Ocean Protect JellyFish Filter JF2250-6-1 treatment system with upstream pre-treatment via the OceanGuard pit inserts within the grated inlet pits. Mite Constructions installed the treatment systems and civil drainage infrastructure.

The JellyFish Filter’s membrane tentacles remove a high percentage of pollutants from the stormwater run-off by forcing the polluted stormwater run-off down into the sump of the JellyFish Filter.  At this point the flow of water changes direction and flows up through the JellyFish treatment tentacles where the treated stormwater then exits the system.

The JellyFish Filter units are always configured in an offline arrangement to divert the frequent flows to the treatment unit, allowing higher, more intense rainfall events to bypass treatment.

13 upstream OceanGuard pit inserts have also been installed into the grated pits to pre-treat stormwater by capturing gross pollutants, sediments and nutrients.



With a short lead time for delivery of precast unit from Ocean Protect, Mite Constructions were well prepared for the installation of the Jellyfish tank on site.  A 100-tonne crane was used for this installation, the Jellyfish came in two pieces, as seen in the image below. The excavation and shoring was well prepared and ready on time for delivery and installation. Due to efficient planning by the Mite Constructions team and the principal contractor, the installation was completed in under 30 minutes by Mite Constructions.
Ocean Protect’s QLD Sales Representative Brooke Barrett was onsite on the day and said “This was one of the most streamlined installations I’ve attended. I take my hat off to the ADCO and Mite Constructions Site Management teams who not only pre-planned well, but were also on hand to ensure there were no obstacles to delay the installation, which can have the potential for unplanned additional costs."
As the project came close to completion the Ocean Protect team returned to the site to install the cartridges, ready to start the important process of filtering pollutants from the stormwater system.


OceanGuards are recommended to be serviced every 2 – 6 months with regular visual inspections and the safe removal of accumulated sediment and pollutants. The JellyFish is serviced on a biannual basis whereby service personnel assess the filtration system’s condition and rinse down each individual tentacle. During this site visit accumulated sediment is removed and disposed at an approved waste disposal site. Cartridge replacement frequencies are typically completed on a biennial basis.
