The $9 million upgrade to the Rochester water reclamation plant is complete.August 1, 2014 3:01am
Coliban chief operating officer Neville Pearce said the upgrade meant the plant was now able to treat water to a higher standard, providing up to an extra 240 megalitres of recycled water for the irrigation district.
‘‘Previously the Rochester site only produced water to a class C standard,’’ he said.
‘‘This project has improved the treatment technology at Rochester, with the installation of membrane filtration technology, enabling the plant to produce class B recycled water.
‘‘This is additional capacity we can now supply locally to customers in the nearby Campaspe Irrigation District Scheme.’’
Before the project customers were supplied with about 1200Ml of class B recycled water a year from the Echuca Water Reclamation Plant.
Completed last month, the upgrade works also included constructing a 10.2km transfer pipeline between the water reclamation plant and irrigation storage lagoons at Singer Rd in Rochester.
The Environmental Protection Authority has strict guidelines in place for the supply and reuse of recycled water.
‘‘All of the recycled water provided to our irrigation customers is diluted with raw water and used in accordance with the EPA guidelines in place,’’ Mr Pearce said.
