Expansion of Tatura Water Treatment Plant

18 May 2018

Works to expand the Tatura Water Treatment Plant will commence in late May. The construction of an additional water treatment plant, control building and chemical dosing facility will increase Goulburn Valley Water’s delivery capacity from 12ML per day to 18ML per day and meet future demand as the town grows. The new plant will be located next to the heritage water tower on Ross Street, Tatura.

Project manager, Lachlan McGregor, explained that “the new plant will include a Dissolved Air Flotation and Filtration [DAFF] plant which is the treatment process currently used in Tatura and a larger chemical dosing and storage facility to accommodate additional chlorine for disinfection”.

The $8 million project will be built by Laurie Curran Water over a 12 month period. Construction activity will occur between 7.30am and 5pm and residents may experience increased traffic and noise during these times. Goulburn Valley Water and the contractor will work to limit disruptions and inconveniences whilst the works are undertaken, however due to the tight site, construction equipment and machinery may be parked in residential areas at times.
