The Capelli Road Wastewater Pump Station is major pump station in Adelaide’s north-western suburbs. It receives flow from nine smaller pump stations and services a population of around 40,000. It discharges wastewater to the Bolivar trunk main, approximately 1.2 km east of the site.
The original Capelli Road wastewater pump station had sustained extensive hydrogen sulphide damage rendering the wet well and building structurally unsound. This project involved complete replacement with new structures and mechanical elements, designed to allow continued operation of the existing pump station during construction and commissioning.
