The Altona Salt Reduction Plant (ASRP) is a dual membrane plant operated by City West Water and located in the western suburbs of Melbourne. It receives tertiary treated effluent from the Altona Wastewater Treatment Plant (ATP) located on the same site.
Current microbial monitoring consists of regulatory culture-based testing of produced water for coliforms and E.coli. Results, however, are only available 2-5 days from sample collection so ATP was investigated as a rapid method for assessing microbiological contamination.

– Water treatment facility managers
