Apex Awarded Drinking Water Plant Upgrade
The upgrade will increase the hydraulic and treatment capacity of the plant, which draws from a surface water body and comes under heavy demand in summer months.
The various upgrades have been selected to provide cost-effective benefits and are scheduled for completion prior to Christmas so the plant capacity is maximised for the holiday period.
Upgrade works will include:
- Optimisation of the raw water feed into the plant
- The installation of new chemical dosing points to improve coagulation
- The installation of a sludge removal system for the clarifier
- And, an upgrade of the filter backwash system with inspection of the filtration media.
Additional automation of the treatment process for this remote treatment plant will also be completed.
