Upgrade for Macarthur Water Filtration Plant

Sydney Water’s Macarthur Water Filtration Plant (WFP) in Appin, NSW, will be upgraded by the company’s long-time partner, TRILITY.

The upgrade to the 24-year-old WFP will ensure continued reliability and quality of water supply to the Camden, Campbelltown and Wollondilly areas of NSW, and will guarantee Sydney Water’s compliance with Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.

Commissioned in 1995, the Macarthur WFP was Sydney Water’s first public–private partnership, involving the design, build, finance and 35-year operation and maintenance of the 265 mL/day plant. Following a lengthy collaborative planning process, the project commenced in 2019, with works expected to be complete by the end of 2020.

Sydney Water and TRILITY’s partnership is based on achieving long-term, affordable water treatment solutions for the community. Both companies are committed to the continual improvement of drinking water quality to Sydney Water’s 300,000 customers.

Kevin Conna, Acting General Manager of Customer Delivery for Sydney Water, said, “We’re delighted to continue our collaborative working relationship with TRILITY. Together we will continue to deliver high-quality drinking water to the residents of Camden, Campbelltown and Wollondilly.”

TRILITY Managing Director Francois Gouws said, “We are very proud of the partnership we have built with Sydney over the past 24 years. It’s a partnership built on collaboration and the exceptional services provided by the Macarthur Operational team.

“The award of this upgrade is a testament to the relationship, and together, we will continue to deliver quality water to the Camden, Campbelltown and Wollondilly areas of New South Wales,” he said.
