After engaging with the community and analysing all available options, TasWater decided to build a new water treatment plant (WTP) at the existing Herrick Reservoir site to provide residents with quality, treated water that meets Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.
Once completed, the new scheme will pump raw water from the Winnaleah Irrigation Scheme Main to the new Herrick WTP via a newly constructed water main. The treated drinking water will then be stored in a new service reservoir connected to Herrick’s existing water system, with the existing reservoir taken out of service at the project’s completion.
As we roll out our 24glasses program, we encourage you to submit any questions you may have via the comments and questions here.
Most importantly, if you are a member of the Herrick community, don’t hesitate to go to yoursay.taswater.com.au and look at the issues and options for Herrick.
