Bronte Park wa­ter plant in­stal­la­tion

The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - NEWS -

A NEW wa­ter treat­ment plant for the town of Bronte Park has been craned into place, but res­i­dents will have to wait un­til late Au­gust for the town’s boil wa­ter alert to be lifted.

The plant is the last of 12 in­stalled by TasWater around Tas­ma­nia to meet its com­mit­ment to end all pub­lic health alerts by the end of Au­gust to roll off the pro­duc­tion line.

It was man­u­fac­tured in a fac­tory in Launce­s­ton, trans­ported by a truck to the site, and lifted into place by crane.

The wa­ter will con­tinue to be sourced from Hy­dro Tas­ma­nia’s Bronte Canal, which is fed from Pine Tier La­goon.

Pip­ing, me­chan­i­cal and elec­tri­cal con­nec­tions will now be com­pleted ahead of a test­ing pro­gram over­seen by the De­part­ment of Health and Hu­man Ser­vices.

It is only af­ter test­ing has been com­pleted that the boil wa­ter alert can be lifted, and TasWater is on track to do so by the end of Au­gust.

Un­til then, all wa­ter for con­sump­tion must con­tinue to be boiled.
