To resolve the BWA and meet the community’s drinking water needs, TasWater built a new water treatment plant (WTP) near the Milford Road Pumping Station. This WTP also services the Epping Forest community via a newly constructed 11 kilometre pipeline.
The Conara WTP is supplied with raw water pumped from the South Esk River via an existing intake, pumping station and rising main. Treated water is then stored in the Milford Road Service Reservoir, while a newly built re-chlorination station ensures 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.
