3MLD ground source Water Treatment Plant expandable to 8MLD.

MTL Role:

As lead designer MTL were responsible for developing the concept design into fully detailed construction drawings for the water treatment plant and rising mains. The flexible design allows the plant to be upgraded in future, with minimal disruption and reduced capital costs, to 4MLD and 8MLD. Significant growth in the region resulted in the project needing to be fast tracked. To facilitate this the design and construction phases had to overlap.

Project Outcome:

The new water treatment plant is considered a leading example of a ground water source treatment plant in New Zealand.
