Pipeline planned for Pioneer

Pipeline planned for Pioneer

TasWater has committed to delivering a pipeline of treated water to Pioneer.
This long-term drinking water supply solution was identified after careful consideration, research and work with the community.
Community, Stakeholder and Customer Relations Department Manager Ruth Dowty said the solution will be a continuation of the Ringarooma Valley water scheme, featuring a pipeline along Winnaleah Road, the Tasman Highway and Gladstone Road to Pioneer.
“We will also be using some of the existing infrastructure at Herrick to deliver treated, safe and reliable drinking water to Pioneer,” Ms Dowty said.
“The modular water treatment plant at Herrick was built under the 24glasses Regional Towns Water Supply Program.”
In addition, our pipework in Pioneer itself will be replaced.
“After Dorset Council voted unanimously to support the reintroduction of a reticulated drinking water supply to Pioneer last year, we have been busy planning and investigating a long-term solution for the town.”
“We will continue to keep the community informed and encourage them to get in contact with us if they have any questions,” Ms Dowty said.
A tank water quality testing program is ongoing, for those who wish to participate, until a piped water supply is reintroduced to Pioneer. This testing is undertaken every three months.
TasWater is on track to deliver treated water to the town by May 2023.
