Glenelg to Adelaide Parklands reuse scheme
This scheme is part of the SA Government's Water Proofing Adelaide Strategy. It treats and transports recycled water from the Glenelg Waste Water Treatment Plant, primarily to irrigate the Adelaide City Park Lands, but with the option of dual reticulation schemes for future clients. GO was responsible for the design, construction testing and commissioning of the buildings, pump stations, screen filters, a 37 MLD Ultrafiltration Plant and Ultraviolet Disinfection plant, and chemical storage and dosing systems. The design incorporated a number of innovations. The pumping and pipeline design eliminated the need for a break tank in the Adelaide parklands, a vacuum piping system allowed chlorine gas to be transferred safely, and a transfer pump station was constructed underneath the existing ocean outfall so that wastewater flows were not interrupted during the tie-in to the new plant.
