Coliban Water has commenced works this month to improve the treatment efficiency at the Kyneton Water Reclamation Plant with the replacement of all four lagoon aerators.General Manager Infrastructure Dr Dharma Dharmabalan said that the current aerators have been in operation since 1986 and are no longer working efficiently, with odour being released from the lagoon.
"Aerators are part of the biological treatment process of wastewater. Through aeration, the waste in the lagoon breaks down through the mixing process the air creates, minimising the odour generated from the lagoon."The current aerators are old and outdated, reducing the plant's treatment efficiencies. Therefore we need to replace all four," Dr Dharmabalan said.
Improvements will also be made to electrical equipment and site access for trade waste customers as part of this project, at a cost of $790,000. The contract for the project has been awarded to By-Jas Engineering Pty Ltd.
"We have also identified that the old aerators are high energy consumers and are undertaking improvements to minimise power needs and improve efficiency.
"All works at the plant to be completed before the end of May this year," Dr Dhamabalan said.
There will be no impact to customer services whilst these works are being undertaken. Customers wanting further information can contact our Customer Contact Centre on 1300 363 200.
