The water treatment plant has the capacity to treat 2.5 million litres of water a day from sources of stormwater, groundwater ingress and tunnel wash down water.

Treatment processes featured in the plant include: Coagulant Dosing, pH correction, Clarification, Media Filtration and Sludge Dewatering via a Filter Press. After treatment the water is released into local waterways.
