With the compact and cost-effective design in place, the focus turned to ensuring the operational reliability and continuity of the plant.
Robust operation and maintenance practices, including a highly automated and advanced process management system, control the process and the finished water quality.
Ongoing technical training and regular skill reviews are undertaken to ensure employees are equipped with the latest technical knowledge, and ongoing investment in systems and innovations drive continuous improvement.
From day one, the plant has provided consistently safe and reliable drinking water to 85 per cent of Sydney’s population, or approximately 4 million residents. At capacity, it can supply around 3,000 million litres of drinking water each day.
