Northern Water Plant construction update

Work on the biggest project in Barwon Water's history, the Northern Water Plant, is progressing well. More than one third of construction is now complete.

All of the major earthworks are finished, the buildings and concrete structures are taking shape, and the construction of two new off-site pump stations is underway.


By Christmas, construction works are expected to be around 50% complete, and the buildings will reach ‘lock-up' stage.

Building fit-out and off-site pump station will be finalised over summer.

The facility is being built by John Holland with a peak workforce of around 100 on-site personnel.

The Northern Water Plant is expected to be complete in mid-2012, with recycled water due to be available in 2013.
