The Roodeplaat Water Treatment Works, constructed as part of the larger Roodeplaat Bulk Water Supply Project, is now one of the most advanced water treatment facilities in South Africa and certainly a flagship plant for the City of Tshwane and Bigen Africa, Ian Pollard, Bigen Africa project manager, tells
This can be attributed to the fact that the City of Tshwane decided to implement the advanced processes of ozonation and granular activated carbon (GAC) filtration processes proactively, in anticipation of expected future deterioration in raw water quality. “The use of ozone in municipal water treatment is certainly not a new process, but it is not deemed conventional in South Africa. The Roodeplaat plant is currently one of the most advanced plants in terms of process configuration in the country and probably in Africa,” explains Pollard.
