Whitton water

Whitton Water Treatment Plant

Water for Whitton is supplied from an extension of the Gogeldrie Branch Canal with an offtake into an in-ground storage facility, having a total capacity of approximately 20 megalitres.

Raw water is gravitated to an earthen ground storage tank from an irrigation supply channel and from there it is pumped to the treatment plant. The treatment process consists of coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, filtration and chlorination. Drinking water is then pumped through a rising main into the reticulated system.
