The Googong WTP was commissioned in 1979 and is one of two water treatment plants that produce drinking water for Canberra and Queanbeyan. It provides up to 180ML/d of drinking water and is critical to meeting the summer water demands of the region.

The 40 year old assets were past their economic life and didn’t meet the needs of Icon Water into the future. Waternish provided four new solids contact clarifier mechanisms to Icon Water’s Googong WTP, an upgrade that provides Icon Water with improved water quality, better systems and control, and the capacity and reliability to meet the area’s future water demands.
