The North Pine WTP is a conventional alum coagulation, sedimentation and filtration plant that treats water that supplies many Northern Brisbane suburbs as well as the regions of Moreton Regional Council including Pine Rivers, Caboolture as well as Redcliffe City. The treatment plant is located downstream and adjacent to the North Pine Dam. This treatment plant began in 1970 with operation commencing in 1974. The plant can treat 250 mega litres of water per day.
A multi billion dollar Water Grid has been established in SEQ which is an integrated system that secures and efficiently manages SEQ water supplies and comprises an infrastructure network of treatment facilities and two way pipes that move water from new and existing sources across the region. One particular network interface that has been established as part of this Grid initiative is the Northern Pipeline Interconnector (NPI) that links the North Pine WTP with the Lander Shute WTP some 60 klms to the North.
