Feedback from October 2017 consultation on the replacement Jeffreys pump station suction tank in Jeffreys Reserve resulted in detailed investigation of a range of alternative locations, including suggestions from residents. The Council then commissioned an independent peer review of eight potential location options.
A preferred alternative location and design (Option 2, artist’s impression shown above) in the existing pump station area offers the following key benefits, while also meeting new water storage standards and requirements:
- Compact, fenced pump station and suction tank ensuring high security
- Site specific architecturally designed structures for the new tank and existing pump station
- Option increases land available for park users by 200m2 (currently located within the existing fenced area)
- Reduced impact on neighbours and park users by lowering the height of the tank
- Lower operating costs than the previous proposal (Option 1) and other options considered
