Roxby Downs Pre-Feasibility Study
An expansion for Roxby Downs needed investigation with a pre-feasibility study undertaken over a six month period.
Tonkin Consulting was engaged by Arup as a subconsultant with responsibilities for all issues relating to water supply, wastewater collection, treatment and re-use and stormwater management within the township.
The project was delivered in three phases which consisted of development of a base case scenario, development and assessment of options and development of a preferred option to enable a cost estimate to be developed.
Part of the project identified the need for the pump station that supplies water to Roxby Downs to be upgraded. The existing pump station provided a variable flow at constant pressure to a distribution network. Hydraulic modelling and development options indicated that with the growth of the Roxby Downs township, a new one would be required.
