Yering Gorge Pump Strainer Upgrade

Client: Melbourne Water Corporation


Yering Gorge pump station transfers water to Sugarloaf Reservoir from the Maroondah Aqueduct and the Yarra River. The facility has been in operation for approximately 40 years as part of the larger Winneke Water Treatment Plant.

Through the design and construct team Aqua Metro Services, we completed the design for the replacement of the two service water strainer sand the by-pass pressure regulating valve assembly under a design and construct project. The former Gordon Marr & Sons strainers were removed and replaced with Amiad ABF-10k series units. The by-pass regulating valve assembly was redesigned to address historical problems with blockages due to organic material from the two available raw water supplier.
