Denman’s Water Treatment Plant was officially commissioned in April 2008, the culmination of a three stage construction process to provide high quality water to the residents of Denman. In the treatment process, river water is pumped though six sand filters before entering a micro-filtration plant.
Filtered water is softened using an ion-exchange system. Finally it is chlorinated and sent to the 5ML reservoir where gravity supplies consumers in town. Because of the height of the reservoir above Denman, pressure reducing valves are utilised to provide a more uniform water pressure across town.
