A new fluoride dosing facility servicing Brisbane’s major water treatment plants at Mt Crosby will soon undergo commissioning, with the new plant expected to be fully operational in August 2018.

Commissioning of the refurbished Holts Hill fluoride dosing facility was delayed to allow upgrade works to the East Bank Water Treatment Plant to be completed.

The commissioning of the new Holts Hill fluoride facility requires both Mt Crosby plants to be operational. The East Bank works were in preparation for a major filter upgrade to the plant planned for 2019. Both Mt Crosby plants are critical, supplying up to 50 per cent of South East Queensland’s daily drinking water supply.

This is the first major upgrade of a fluoride dosing facility since fluoridation was introduced into SEQ in 2009.
