A new wastewater treatment plant in Goulburn, NSW, brought the city’s sewerage facilities into the 21st century. The $30 million project replaces Goulburn’s existing plant, which was built in 1918, and will provide modern wastewater treatment and effluent re-use facilities.
Goulburn Mulwaree Mayor Bob Kirk said the completion of the project, which includes a new treatment plant, pump station and rising main, would provide the necessary infrastructure for the city now and into the future.
As well as meeting modern environmental standards, it will provide recycled water for the Goulburn Reuse Scheme, which will be used to maintain Goulburn’s green spaces.
This was an important project, including constructing a new concrete flow-receiving structure, an in-ground concrete raw sewage lift pump station and the refurbishment of an existing grit tank.
Construction of Goulburn Waste Water Treatment Plant created 500 jobs during construction, which is an enormous investment in the local community.
