Upgrade works have begun at Rochester's Coliban Water Treatment Plant.ELAINE COONEY December 14, 2012 4:07am
Rochester’s Coliban Water Treatment Plant has been a hive of activity for the past few weeks with upgrade works under way.
The $7.6 million project, which is expected to be finished by June, aims to improve the quality of the water when raw water goes through significant changes.
These changes could occur for a number of different reasons, which include flood and drought.
Project manager Malcolm McKenzie said the old sand filters on-site would be replaced by new membrane filters, which would filter water to a higher quality.
The large green steel structure, which can be seen from the road, will house the plant’s new membrane filters.
The foundations for two steel tanks have been constructed along with the river-side section of the wall.
Site supervisor Morgan Courtney said the construction of the wall on the river side was done first in order to minimise disruption to the Campaspe river walk.
Once the wall is constructed, the river track will be smoothed out while the work inside the wall continues.
A Coliban Water spokesperson said the company planned to have the walk re-opened early in the new year.
