CFA awards Veolia water treatment contract

Veolia Australia and New Zealand has been awarded a design, construct, operate and maintain contract with Country Fire Authority (CFA), Victoria for water treatment.

Veolia, with construction partner Filtec, will take 18 months to commission Water Management Systems (WMS) at seven CFA Victorian Emergency Management Training Centres across regional Victoria.

Following construction completion, Veolia will then operate and maintain all seven facilities for an initial three-year period.

The water treatment systems will treat water to potable water quality and includes the treatment of any legacy poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).

Veolia Australia and New Zealand General Manager – Industrial Services John Baranauskas said that the company is excited to partner with CFA to deliver water treatment solutions that allow for water to be reused.

“As a leader in the identification, removal and treatment of hazardous waste materials including chemicals, we will ensure that the CFA are able to operate their training activities without risk to the environment and the community,” Mr Baranauskas said.

The project is being delivered by Veolia’s Remediation Services, Industrial Services and Engineering teams.
