PROVIDING SYDNEY RESIDENTS WITH SAFE AND RELIABLE DRINKING WATER FOR MORE THAN 17 YEARS
Located at Prospect Reservoir about 15kms west of Sydney’s CBD, the Prospect Water Filtration Plant is one of the world’s largest water filtration plants, with a capacity to provide reliable and safe drinking water for up to 85% of Sydney's population – that’s 3.97 million people.
Former NSW Premier Bob Carr opened the $240 million state-of-the-art plant, on November 4, 1996.
Build under a 25-year build, own, operate and transfer (BOOT) contract between Sydney Water Corporation and the Prospect Water Partnership, a consortium consisting of Lyonnaise des Eaux (now SUEZ), Ondeo and Unisuper, the plant is operated by SUEZ.
It runs 24-hours a day using innovative water filtration techniques to purify the water and is designed to filter up to three billion litres of drinking water a day to meet Sydney’s needs.
The successful plant operates with 100% production availability (24-hours a day), has achieved more than 1,500 days without an hour of lost time due to injury, while remaining compliant with regulatory and statutory requirements.
Sydney Water and the people of Sydney can trust and rely on the valued service delivered by the plant and its team.
