Located in the Derwent Valley approximately 87 kilometres north-west of Hobart, Wayatinah was established in 1953 to house Hydro Electric Commission workers.

The village’s water scheme was built between 1953 and 1955. The system now draws water from Hydro Tasmania’s Lake Liapootah via the Liapootah power station’s internal water system which is supplied to TasWater’s 66 customers.

Customers in Wayatinah were notified of a temporary Boil Water Alert as a result of poor water quality in December 2011.

Wayatinah 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.
