The key focus for the Corporation over the next three years is the progressive upgrade of wastewater collection, transfer and treatment system and upgrades to the tertiary treatment process at the corporations Ian Bartlett Water Purification Plant that produces our drinking water.
Odour and Corrosion mitigation program
Various sewer pumping systems create gases that are both odorous and corrosive toward concrete and metal. This project aims to establish a strategy that will better understand the problem areas combined with the action plans required to implement solutions.
Solutions are likely to involve:
- An air treatment facility
- Chemical treatment
- Replacement of corroded sewer manholes
Sewer Junction Rebuild Program
Fix collapsed sewer junctions and sewer mains to avoid service interruptions or sewer spills.
Sustainable Water Reuse and Land Management
Expansion of wastewater treatment plants for irrigation to increase recycled water use.
Water Main Replacement Program
The rehabilitation and/or replacement of the next stage of the Water Main Replacement Program will:
- improve service reliability and water quality
- reduce maintenance and repair costs
- reduce potential property damage if the water main were to fail.
