Macarthur Water Filtration Plant upgrade

We're upgrading the water filtration plant to ensure it continues to provide high quality drinking water to current and future residents living in the Camden, Campbelltown, Liverpool and Wollondilly regions.

Work is expected to start in March 2019 and will take about two years to finish.

Our work will ensure we continue to deliver high quality drinking water.


About the upgrade

We're upgrading Macarthur Water Filtration Plant (WFP). This will ensure it continues to provide high quality drinking water to current and future residents in accordance with the 2011 Australian Drinking Water Guidelines. The plant supplies water to residents in these regions:

  • Camden
  • Campbelltown
  • Liverpool
  • Wollondilly. 

Detailed design started in September 2018, and we expect construction to begin in March 2019.

All the work will occur in the plant and at Broughton Pass Weir. Residents living in the area may notice increased noise and truck movements during the upgrade.

We're committed to keeping the community and stakeholders informed by providing regular updates on construction activities and how we'll minimise any impacts on nearby residents.
We're interested in hearing from residents and the community about this project. To know more and provide feedback, please call us on  13 20 92.
