North East Water is seeking to engage the services of Principal Contractors through two separate Tender’s to systematically dry and move primary sludge in lagoons at Bright, Beechworth, Chiltern and North Wangaratta. Additionally, bio-solids at North Wangaratta require further drying, exporting and stockpiling. The successful contractor/s will be responsible for screening of primary treated sludge to remove foreign material, drying, stockpiling, cataloguing and transporting bio-solids for storage to Wangaratta.

The first Tender will be for airdrying of lagoons at the Chiltern and North Wangaratta sites.

The second Tender will include the Bright and Beechworth sites which have limited options on site and will require alternate drying process, possibly mechanical de-watering.
