New Water Treatment Works

We have extensive knowledge in the design and development of potable Water Treatment facilities. Our expertise has a rich development background from the 1990’s when rural water supply schemes were introduced.

We offer design services from small Package type Treatment Plants to large Conventional Water Treatment Facilities. We have a proven track record that our designs are practical and easy to operate and maintained by municipal staff.

Our recent New Water Treatment Facilities including the completion of processes such as civil mechanical and electrical designs, construction management and supervision are as follows:

Water Treatment Facility Refurbishment

We have performed refurbishment designs on many Water Treatment facilities. Our engineers have the capacity to survey and analyse existing facilities. Defective and “bottleneck” areas are identified and recorded in a report to assist clients with funding motivations to Department of Water Affairs etc.

We are proud to announce that we have been involved in the reviving of many dilapidated treatment facilities that are now all complying with the “Blue Drop” Requirements of Department of Water Affairs.

Recently refurbished Water Treatment Facilities include:

    • eMondlo Township WTW, refurbish and upgrade from 8ML to 15Ml/day.
    • Ulundi WTW, refurbish and upgrade 28Ml/day.
    • Barberton / Suidkaap WTW and Raw water abstraction 4.7Ml/day.

ECA Consulting has also been involved in numerous new Waste Water Treatment Works facilities. Employing the latest technology standards with nutrient and phosphate removal where required by the Department of Water Affairs. We also offer plant assessment services to municipalities. This ensures a balanced facility that offers the best quality effluent for the size of the plant and to meet with “Green Drop” requirements of Department of Water Affairs. We have the required industry knowledge to add value to municipal infrastructure implementation, operation and maintenance, as we have a good understanding of municipal concerns, we understand their budget constraints, and we are able to assist in resolving their treatment plant emergencies.
