Gore Water Treatment Plant Upgrade, New Zealand


The Client

Gore District Council

Gore is a district on the South Island of New Zealand covering 1,250km² with a population of 13,200. Gore District Council is the body that oversees the development & planning of the local area of Gore and Mataura. Gore is a popular fishing town& known for its country & western music events.

The Client's Needs

Gore District Council wanted to upgrade an existing wastewater treatment plant. The wastewater was being discharged into a fishing river & required that Gore District Council removed the phosphorous from the discharged water. 

Veolia's Solution

Veolia Water Technologies was awarded the contract for the supply & commissioning for a Actiflo®Clarification packaged plant. 

The Actiflo® plant removes phosphorous from municipal wastewater at a flow of 9 ML/day before being discharged in to a nearby river. 

The wastewater is treated in an oxidation pond system before being discharged into a fishing river and required that the Council removes the phosphorous from the discharged water especially during low river flows when the river is most vulnerable. 

Actiflo® Clarification Packaged Plants are standardised, compact systems that produce a consistent clarified water of superior quality with system footprints that are between 5 and 20 times smaller than conventional clarification systems of similar capacity.
