Lower Molonglo Upgrade

Lower Molonglo Water Quality Control Centre Solids Handling improvement

Icon Water owns and operates the ACT’s network of dams, water treatment plants, sewerage treatment plants, reservoirs, water and sewerage pumping stations, mains and other related infrastructure. It consistently delivers safe drinking water and reliable sewerage services to a community of over 367,000 people.

The Lower Molonglo Solids Handling Project is based on the strategic assumption that the current practice of incineration of sewage solids, grit and screenings will continue.

The Project is intended to allow an integrated approach to a staged upgrade of the solids handling system, with consideration of long term growth projections and possible changes to the plant air emissions licence conditions.

In 2016, Icon Water will begin a discussion with the Canberra community about what these improvements will mean for this historic plant and for the wider community. Go to the Lower Molonglo Water Quality Control Centre site for more information.
