Aquatec Maxcon awarded Refurbishment Contract for Wahgunyah Water Treatment Plant, VIC

Wahgunyah WTP

Our design team has developed a unique, innovative solution which makes the best use of the existing site and equipment, to deliver a cost effective solution for the refurbishment of the ageing Wahgunyah Water Treatment Plant (WTP), in Victoria. The Wahgunyah township is located on the Southern Bank of the Murray River, opposite Corowa in New South Wales. 

The existing filtration plant is unable to cope with recent raw water excursions, particularly related to colour and turbidity.  Hence, North East Water have made a decision to convert the Water Treatment Plant to a Dissolved Air Floatation (DAF) process to ensure a reliable water supply can be provided to the township of Wahgunyah in the future.  The scope includes re-using raw water pumps, diverting raw water to a new flocculation tank, a new DAF injection manifold, cutter sprays and new DAF recycle pumps and modifications to the existing roof structure.   

The interfaces will be managed efficiently by our project team to ensure that no disruptions to the water supply at Wahgunyah occur.
