To resolve this issue and meet the community’s drinking water needs, TasWater determined that a water treatment plant (WTP) be built near the existing Milford Road Pumping Station. Once constructed, the WTP will also service the Epping Forest community via a newly constructed 11 kilometre pipeline.
The Conara WTP will be supplied with raw water pumped from the South Esk River via the existing intake, pumping station and rising main. Treated water will then be stored in the Milford Road Service Reservoir, while a re-chlorination station will be built to ensure the chlorine residual is maintained ahead of distributing the water to residents.
As we roll out our 24glasses program, we encourage you to submit any questions you may have via the questions and comments here.
Most importantly, if you are a member of the Conara community don’t hesitate to go to yoursay.taswater.com.au and look at the issues and options for Conara as they emerge.
