Albury DAFF Upgrade

In 2015 WTA was engaged by ACC to design and construct the DAF upgrade to the 70ML/day water.

Albury City Council (Council) provides potable water supply to the Albury and Greater Hume regions and services approximately 50,000 residents (22,600 connections). The Albury potable water supply consists of a catchment, a water filtration plant (WFP), and a distribution system consisting of water  storage reservoirs, pump stations, disinfection booster stations and reticulation system pipe work. Raw water for the Albury WFP is pumped from the River Murray downstream of Lake Hume. Albury WFP consists of two plants, plants A and B, which were commissioned in 1980 and 1992, respectively. Each plant can produce 70 ML/day of potable water with a total capacity of 140 ML/day.
