Sydney Water has developed the Malabar System Investment Program (MSIP), which aims to address wastewater servicing in the Malabar Wastewater System (Malabar System). It consists of an integrated approach for a system-wide solution for long-term growth servicing and system compliance to building resilience, liveability and suitability for Sydney and enabling a more circular economy. 

The MSIP has been planning for the critical “near-term” needs of the Malabar System to address the population growth in the Malabar catchment, environmental compliance and network capacity in the North Georges Rivers Submain (NGRS). 

Sydney Water has established the Fairfield Water Resource Recovery Facility (WRRF) and Liverpool-Ashfield Pipeline (LAP) Works (the Project), which will deliver the MSIP “Near-Term” Works P3 (Fairfield WRRF Upgrades) and P4b (SPS1151 and LAP Refurbishment and New AquaNet Pipeline) as a single main works package. 

The Project includes: 

  • Upgrading the Fairfield WRRF to meet Environment Protection Licences compliance by reducing odour and frequency of wet weather overflow; 
  • Installing new screens and grit dewatering equipment, including spill sump tanks and associated pipework at the Fairfield WRRF; 
  • Replacing or upgrading equipment, electrical switchboards and transformers at the Fairfield WRRF; 
  • Civil structural works for new equipment fit-out and new water pipework; 
  • Civil roadworks for widening an approximately 80m road at the Fairfield site; 
  • Installing new odour control units, including concrete base slabs, support structures for ducting, access platforms and electrical supply; 
  • Refurbishing or replacing the existing SPS1151 pumps at Fairfield to allow flow diversion from the NGRS to the LAP and improve productivity in the NGRS desilting and rehabilitation program; 
  • Installing new odour control units, including concrete base slabs, support structures for ducting, access platforms and electrical supply; 
  • Concrete rehabilitation and recoating works for the balance tank at the Fairfield site; and 
  • Construction of a new DN600 pipe connected to the LAP at Sherwin Park with the alignment via the Fairfield WRRF, then into the local road network and connecting into the AquaNet Recycled Water Plant. 

Sydney Water has provided an Advanced Notice of Procurement Memorandum with additional information intended to enable market procurement readiness and allow potential organisations to undertake teaming arrangements, assemble resources, assess risks and devise their best plans for responding to this opportunity.
