SA Water is seeking proposals for the former site of the Port Adelaide Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in West Lakes (SA).
Expressions of Interest (EOI) are being invited from the private sector for the surplus SA Water site on Frederick Road, West Lakes.
SA Water’s Chief Executive, John Ringham, said SA Water is seeking proposals that will deliver a suitable development outcome for the site.
“SA Water is committed to ensuring that any development that occurs on the site considers the amenity of the area, while adequately addressing the environmental issues on the site,” Mr Ringham said.
“We will be working with local community reference groups throughout the EOI process and inviting them to provide comment to ensure community views are taken into account.”
The former Port Adelaide WWTP was first established in 1935 and was a key operational asset for SA Water for 70 years. It was closed down and decommissioned in 2004 and replaced by a small pumping station.
The site covers an area of just over 15 hectares, of which around 2.5 hectares is occupied by the old plant itself.
On account of its past use, the site has certain environmental challenges but the offering is nonetheless a significant holding in a readily accessible location that warrants a land use and environmental solution that can recognise and accommodate the existing conditions.
