The Roxby Downs Expansion Pre-Feasibility was undertaken over a six-month period during 2007 with a consultancy value in excess of $1 million.
Tonkin Consulting was a subconsultant to Arup responsible for all issues relating to water supply, wastewater collection, treatment and re-use and stormwater management within the township.
The project was undertaken in three phases:
Roxby Downs Council is responsible for the management of water supply and wastewater services within Roxby Downs.
The existing water supply system is pressurised from a pump station located to the north-west of the town. This pump station provides a variable flow at constant pressure to a distribution network. Hydraulic modelling of the base case and development options identified that the pump station would require upgrading as part of the growth of the Roxby Downs township.
