  • Woodman Point expansion will increase capacity by 40 Million litres a day
  • Up to 200 workers will be employed during the construction phase

Up to 200 jobs will be created as work is carried out to upgrade the Woodman Point Wastewater Treatment Plant in Munster.

“McGowan Government is committed to creating local jobs through local infrastructure projects.” Minister for Water Dave Kelly said.

“About 200 workers will be employed during the peak of construction and 15 apprentices at Civmec have been gaining valuable experience working on the fabrication of the concrete panels at their Henderson facility.”

$158.5 Million project will increase the capacity of the wastewater treatment plant by 40 Million litres a day, to safely treat 180 Million litres of wastewater from homes and businesses located south of the river.

Expansion includes the construction of 8 concrete sedimentation tanks which will be 50 Metres in diameter and 6 Metres high, with the capacity to treat 11 Million litres of treated wastewater each.

Henderson-based company Civmec and Black and Veatch Australia are working with the Water Corporation on the expansion project, which is expected to be completed by October 2019.
