Lower Prosser Dam Safety Upgrade

What's this project all about?

Lower Prosser Dam is used as the main water storage for the township of Orford. In 2018, a strategic business case was approved to investigate an upgrade to reduce safety risks and improve the operation and maintenance of the asset. 
In 2021, TasWater completed investigations at the dam and will now progress to a dam safety review to inform the most appropriate upgrade solution.
