Tatura Water Treatment Plant (WTP) services a population of approximately 4,000 people and several major industrial customers and there has been increasing customer demand.
Goulburn Valley Water (GVW) identified that staged augmentation of the existing treated water storage and plant production capacity was required to meet increasing customer demand
A site inspection of the $8Million upgrade of the Tatura Water Treatment Plant was undertaken with the project being about 50% complete
The upgrade generally comprises a new Raw Water Pump Station No.2, a new DAFF Water Treatment Plant No.2 (WTP No.2), and a new Chlorination Building and dosing plant and associated connecting works and interface works which will increase the plants capacity from 12ML/d to 18ML/d to meet future demand.
Lachlan McGregor GVW’s Project Manager provided an in site into the challenges of the project including working on a brownfield site, close neighbouring properties and modifying requirements to meet changes in water industry standards.
Following the site visit a few of us adjourned to the Tatura Hotel (Middle Pub) to enjoy some refreshments courtesy of IN-GV
