Epping Forest

Epping Forest, 40 kilometres south of Launceston, is a popular truck stop on the Midland Highway. The settlement’s 23 TasWater customers are supplied water from the South Esk River and the town is currently subject to a Boil Water Alert.

The catchment above the water intake is used for forestry, grazing, mining and aquaculture.

Epping Forest is currently part of TasWater’s Regional Towns Water Supply Strategy, and TasWater is committed to having the Boil Water Alert lifted by August 2018.
