Clifton packaged water treatment plant

The Clifton packaged water treatment plant project will deliver a pre-assembled, complete water treatment option for the groundwater aquifer bore system in the town of Clifton. Delivering multimedia filtration, reverse osmosis and ultraviolet disinfection, this infrastructure will provide a short-term town water solution that will enable most of the water carting to cease from April 2021.

Clifton is traditionally a very conservative water user – frequently the best in the Region. Subject to groundwater availability, this infrastructure is being designed to meet the local demand.

The Clifton town water system has four aquifer bores. This water treatment system will enable drawing water from all four bores until a long-term solution is in place.

Project start date

August 2020

Target completion date

Clifton long-term town water solutions

Several long-term solutions are being progressed in parallel for our Clifton town water system.

Prior investigations into options for access to private bores via an expression of interest in December 2019 and again in early 2020 have not returned any workable options to date.
