Glen Huon Water Treatment Plant upgrade complete
Work at the Glen Huon Water Treatment Plant has been completed, delivering a major investment and improved water security to the community.
We have improved the efficiency and operation of the plant, installing the latest technology and instrumentation for more accurate monitoring and quality control. We have also installed bypass technology to ensure sub-standard water does not make it into the water supply.
The upgrade was undertaken by our Project Delivery Group (PDG) as part of the $1 billion capital works program we are delivering over the next four years. Project Manager Peter Janisch said the project was part of our long-standing commitment to deliver new and upgraded water infrastructure improvements in the Huon Valley.
“The upgrade improves the operational efficiency of the plant and reduces the risk of significant downtime with the potential to impact water supply. From an operational point of view, that means additional safety for our workers.
“It is also about delivering quality control of the water supply to our customers, so they are assured of clean, safe, and reliable drinking water.
“What projects like this deliver are very far-reaching. They are good for customers and the environment, but they are also good for jobs. About 93 per cent of all contracts to upgrade or build new infrastructure go to Tasmanian businesses to date, supporting hundreds of jobs,” Mr Janisch said.
