The New Waterford WTP provides treated water to approximately 9,000 people located in New Waterford, Scotchtown, Lingan and New Victoria. The sources of water for the facility are the Waterford and Kilkenny lakes. Water is piped through a 500 mm diameter water intake to the WTP with a capacity to treat 9.8 MLD (2.15 MIGD). The facility took 17 months to complete from the start of construction to commissioning.

A conventional treatment system is used to achieve the treatment objectives of reducing colour, turbidity, and total organic carbon and to correct the corrosiveness of the water. The main components of the treatment system include a raw water intake, pH adjustment, oxidation, coagulation and flocculation, clarification using dissolved air floatation, filtration, disinfection, fluoridation, corrosion control, water storage and high lift pumping.

Dillon provided the design and construction administration for this project including plant commissioning. Full-time construction observation services were provided.
