Bryn Estyn Water Treatment Plant Upgrade

The Bryn Estyn Water Treatment Plant (WTP) is the primary water supply for the City of Hobart and surrounding areas. The original plant, Plant 1, was commissioned in 1963 and expanded in 1972. A further augmentation, Plant 2, was completed in 1992.

The objectives of the Bryn Estyn WTP Upgrade are to:

  • Enable a reliable supply of 160 ML/day and be capable of being upgraded in the future to match growth in demand;
  • Remove taste and odour forming and other organic compounds year-round
  • Meet additional increase water quality limits specified in the basis of design
  • Address the risks from single points of failure
  • Plant operations shall be robust against the threat of bushfires and terrorism.

Construction is expected to take approximately three (3) years, with the upgraded WTP to provide a robust and multi-barrier approach to protecting health and reducing risk within the water catchment.

Early works are expected to begin early in 2020.
