Wahgunyah Water Treatment Plant upgrade

North East Water is planning to upgrade 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 seen recently within the Murray River, as well as prolonged dirty water events.

As part of the upgrade, the building will have to be extended above and beyond the existing filters. The exact design will be determined with a successful building contractor and will be subject to planning approval.

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.

North East Water is liaising with the Wahgunyah Progress Association Inc. in seeking community input into concept development of changes required to the exterior design of the Wahgunyah Water Treatment Plant.

Once the contract for the works is awarded, detailed design will commence. This will provide another opportunity for the community to review the proposed works.
