Cornwall’s residents require access to quality, treated drinking water year-round. To meet this need, TasWater determined to build a new water treatment plant (WTP) at the town’s John Street Service Reservoir site.
The new system involves raw (untreated) water gravitating from the mine fanshaft to the new WTP via the existing intake and gravity main. Once treated, the drinking water is then stored in a new roofed service reservoir and pumped through Cornwall’s existing water pipe network to customers.
