Avon Valley Gazette - - NEWS -

THE State Govern­ment says 170 jobs will be cre­ated through stage 2 of Perth’s ground­wa­ter re­plen­ish­ment scheme.

It has awarded a con­struc­tion con­tract to Suez Wa­ter & Treat­ment So­lu­tions and Perth- based com­pany Clough for the Wa­ter Cor­po­ra­tion’s site in north­ern sub­urb Craigie.

The joint ven­ture will con­struct a wa­ter re­cy­cling plant, which forms part of the cor­po­ra­tion’s $ 262 mil­lion ex­pan­sion project that also in­cludes a 13km recharge pipe­line ex­tend­ing to the north­east of the plant, and two recharge sites in Wan­neroo and Neer­abup.

The plant will have the ca­pac­ity to recharge up to 14 bil­lion litres of ex­tra wa­ter each year to ground­wa­ter sup­plies.
