Black Rock Recycled Water Plant construction update 3: video

Work on the Black Rock Recycled Water Plant project began in January 2012 and is now around 95% complete.

  • All pipe and equipment testing is complete and the high voltage power upgrades have been finalised.
  • Commissioning (operational testing) is due to begin later this month.
  • Class A recycled water certification is on track for mid 2013.
  • The project has logged 90,000 hours with no time lost to injuries.

The new plant is being built adjacent to the existing Black Rock Water Reclamation Plant in Connewarre. The facilities are part of the larger Black Rock Environmental Precinct, which also incorporates a biosolids drying plant, recycled water share farm, bicycle path and buffer land.

When complete, the recycled water plant will take treated water from the existing water reclamation plant and refine it with several treatment phases including ultra-filtration, reverse osmosis, ultraviolet disinfection and chlorine disinfection. The resultant Class A recycled water will be available for new 'purple pipe' residential developments at Armstrong Creek and Torquay North.
