Ground water treatment starts again

Central Coast Council has "recommissioned" the ground water treatment plant sited at its Woy Woy depot in Gallipoli Ave.

In a report to the July 27 Council meeting, water services section manager Mr Luke Drury provided an update "on the status of major infrastructure projects currently underway that contribute to water security".

"Operation of the Woy Woy Ground Water Treatment Plant was suspended due to a relatively secure water supply position in 2010," he reported.

"Works to reinstate the supply of water from the Woy Woy Borefield and treatment of the water at the Woy Woy Ground Water Treatment Plant commenced in 2019.

"Operation of the Woy Woy Bore Water Treatment Plant has recommenced.

"Production volumes are approximately 1.8 million litres per day, which is enough water to keep the plant operating well and available for increase in supply volumes up to 2-3 million litres per day (based on yield from the available groundwater bores) as required.

"Treated groundwater is being supplied into the distribution network from June."

He said the "next milestone" would be to "review operating strategies to enable efficient and ongoing periodic operation of the plant to maintain availability of assets over the longer term".

The project is expected to be completed before the end of the year.

In another report, the Council's Catchments and Coast committee had heard that a case study was being conducted in the "Everglades Catchment" to help understand and develop a model of the interaction between groundwater and surface water.

The aim was to explore how effective the "integrated water management" approach was in improviing surface water run-off.

The report said the study would "complement floodplain risk management studies and plans", presumably including the one for the Woy Woy Peninsula which would have a consultation "with relevant stakeholders" to be completed by August next year.
