The Freeburgh Water Treatment Plant is a 5.0 ML/d dual train Dissolved Air Flotation and Filtration (DAFF) Water Treatment Plant that treats water for supply to Bright in North East Victoria.
Laurie Curran Water was the principal contractor for this project. The treatment plant incorporated PAC, alum, caustic soda, polyelectrolyte and gaseous chloring dosing processes into the design to ensure the treated water meets the requirements of the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (ADWG).
Given that the location was particularly prone to bushfires, the architect-designed building was fitted with a bushfire protection deluge system, configured to envelop the plant in water spray to protect it from ember attack.
