Northern Midlands treatment plant to open to the public

A water treatment plant will have its doors open to the community later this month, providing local Campbell Town residents with the opportunity to see how it operates.
The Campbell Town Water Treatment Plant (WTP) services approximately 1400 customers in both Ross and Campbell Town.
TasWater Community Stakeholder and Customer Relations Department Manager Ruth Dowty said the open day is a rare opportunity for the community to see inside a treatment plant.
“We will be opening up the plant to the public on Saturday 21 May 2022 from 10.30am until 1.30pm,” she said.
“We would like to extend the invitation to anyone aged ten years and older, all children under 18 years must be accompanied by an adult.
“I would encourage anyone in the community to come along and have a chat with us.”
Anyone attending the open day is asked to wear sturdy fully enclosed shoes as the site has stairs and uneven surfaces.
“We will also be attending the Evandale Market on Sunday 22 May 2022, and we would love to speak with Northern Tasmanians there too,” Ms Dowty said.
“There will be plenty to see and do at the TasWater stall, people will be able to create their own terrarium, a world in a jar that shows how the water cycle works.
“Fact sheets and links to our new educational resources will also be available.”
