Water Treatment

Water is treated at the Lockington Water Treatment Plant.

The Water Treatment Process includes coagulation and flocculation, dissolved air flotation (DAF), filtration, pH correction and disinfection by chlorination. Taste and odour compounds can be removed using Powdered activated carbon (PAC).

The treated water is pumped from clearwater storage tanks to a standpipe where it's gravity fed into the Lockington reticulation system.



Lockington has a hybrid sewerage system: all properties have onsite septic tanks which discharge to our sewer system.

Sewage is treated at the Lockington Water Reclamation Plant (WRP).

What happens at the water reclamation plant

Sewage is treated at the plant using a lagoon system. The WRP produces treated Class C recycled water, which is evaporated or irrigated to farmland surrounding the site.


The nearest standpipe to Lockington is:

  • Campaspe Street (saleyards), Rochester

For more information on standpipes and how to use them, see water carting.
