Gladstone’s water scheme first became operational in 1954 sourcing water from the Ringarooma River just under one kilometre north-east of the town. The water provided by the scheme is untreated and has been subject to a long standing Boil Water Alert. TasWater currently has 78 customers in Gladstone.
Gladstone is currently part of TasWater’s Regional Towns Water Supply Strategy. TasWater is committed to having the Boil Water Alert lifted by August 2018.
As we roll out our 24glasses program, we encourage you to submit any questions you may have via the comments and questions here.
