National Park

Located inside Mount Field National Park approximately 80 kilometres north-west of Hobart, the National Park system draws water from the Lake Fenton pipeline.  The supply was previously subject to a Boil Water Alert (BWA) due to high turbidity levels (floating sediment) arising during weather events such as high rainfall.

The solution

After considering the available options, TasWater built a new Water Treatment Plant (WTP) next to National Park’s existing chlorine dosing station to supply residents, businesses, and visitors with water that meets Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.

Water from the Lake Fenton pipeline is diverted to the new WTP and stored in a 350 kilo litre clear water storage (CWS) unit as part of the new system. The treated water is then piped through new pressurised mains to the existing National Park water pipe system, with additional pumping on the CWS outlet to ensure maximum service pressure for customers. A new generator was also installed to service both the chlorine dosing station and WTP.
