Water Treatment Plant –
The Water Treatment Plant (WTP) Refurbishment Project consists of rehabilitating/replacing the existing 9.5 MGD treatment plant to ensure the ongoing production of high quality potable water to the City of Dunedin’s residents and customers.  This is a progressive design build project and consists of two phases.  Phase I includes pilot testing and detailed design to 90% in order to establish a “Guaranteed Maximum Price” (GMP) for construction.  Phase II, which will be brought before the Commission at a future date, includes completing detailed design, construction, commissioning, and turnover to the City. Phase I has commenced.  Bench-scale pilot testing has begun; screening oxidant and coagulant chemicals which that may be used in the final design. City forces installed raw water lines to provide untreated raw water to the pilot system for accurate and complete testing to commence.
