With a capacity of 3 million m3 per day of drinking water (in the future 4,2 million m3), the Prospect plant is the largest drinking water treatment works in the world to have been built in one stage. This unit has been developed and is operated by Australian Water Services (Lyonnaise des Eaux) under a BOOT contract with Sydney Water. It was commissioned in September 1996, 30 months after commencing the work.
This paper describes the technical developments in hydraulics, chemical mixing, high rate filtration, automation and highlights the results obtained after a year of operation.
