Goulburn Valley Water’s (VIC) O’Kanes Road Water Treatment Plant is fully operational after works to connect it to the region’s old plant.
The new $6.29million plant was constructed by Laurie Curran Water and it provide an increased water treatment capacity for Numurkah.
Senior Engineer, Lachlan McGregor, said that the disconnection of the old plant was completed at the end of November 2015, allowing treated water to be fed directly to the towns storage tanks.
Planning has now commenced on the removal of the old water treatment plant.
“We’ve finished the connection works at both sites now and it’s great to have the new plant fully online as we move into the higher use months of the year,” Mr McGregor said.
The 10ML/day capacity will support future residential and commercial development in the area and the new infrastructure will provide improvements for both the quality of drinking water and security of the town water supply.
