Wahgunyah Water Treatment Plant upgrade

North East Water is upgrading the Wahgunyah Water Treatment Plant from mid-2017.

This upgrade will increase the treatment capacity and efficiency of the plant and improve the town’s water quality through the installation of an additional treatment process called Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF). The new treatment process is an additional treatment step that will be integrated into the existing direct filtration process.

The upgrade will enhance the treatment plant’s performance during blue-green algae outbreaks as well as prolonged dirty water events.

As part of the upgrade, the building is being extended above and beyond the existing filters. There is no plan to modify the existing building structure. Our aim for the building extension is to blend into the existing building and immediate surrounds. The upgrade will also include some improvements to the aesthetics of the site.

North East Water has been liaising with the Wahgunyah Progress Association and the community to seek feedback on:

  • Features of the existing structure they value;
  • The look the community prefers on the exterior of the extension; and
  • Improving the aesthetics of the site.

Construction will commence in March 2018 and is expected to be complete by early April. Once construction of the extension is complete, work will commence on improvements to the aesthetics of the site.

For further information on the project, please contact the Project Manager Miguel de Oliveira on 1300 361 633.

The Planning Permit from Indigo Shire Council was approved in early February 2018. Construction is expected to commence early March. Minor construction works have already commenced on site.

North East Water has received feedback from the community on the landscape design following the last round of consultation. Our consultant will now develop the Landscape Concept Design, incorporating this feedback, which will be presented to the community for review before being finalised.

Coming Soon!
