Coliban Water will open the gates to its Rochester Water Treatment Plant on Saturday.
The open day will allow the community to see the completed upgrades and learn more about how their water supply is treated.
Chief operating officer Neville Pearce said the day would give the community an opportunity to see the plant and treatment processes first hand.
‘‘We will be running three tours during the morning to take interested members of the community through the treatment plant to see the completed upgrade and learn more about how we treat and supply water to the township,’’ he said.
Mr Pearce said the $7.6 million upgrade was completed in late 2013 to improve treatment processes.
‘‘We have installed a more robust water treatment system that will allow the plant to continue to operate and supply high-quality water to customers when we experience significant changes in the raw water supply,’’ he said.
‘‘The upgrades included new filtration processes, including ozone generation and membrane filtration and upgrades to the existing sand filtration system.’’
Flood mitigation works were also part of this project, with the construction of a 1.85m-high precast concrete flood barrier around the plant.
The open day will be held on Saturday between 9am and noon.
Tours will start at 9.30am, 10.30am and 11.30am.
Bookings for the tours are essential.
