Marine Update - February 2019

Completion of offshore investigations

Water Corporation has completed its Alkimos offshore investigations and will now demobilise the marine jack-up barge from the Alkimos area.

The Corporation thanks the Alkimos community and marine stakeholders for their patience during the work, which is being considered as part of feasibility investigations for a seawater desalination plant at Alkimos.

The barge will commence its journey to Henderson when conditions are favourable, depending on conditions this could take upwards of 3 weeks.

Wastewater Treatment Plant Ocean Outfall maintenance

In coming weeks the Corporation will complete maintenance work on the Alkimos Wastewater Treatment Plant ocean outfall.

The work is planned for completion over 2-3 days, pending weather conditions and will involve divers and a vessel being positioned above the pipeline. Flags and required signage will be in place to advise other vessels to the work.

Operation of the wastewater treatment plant will not be interrupted during the work.
