The upgrade of the Nhill town water supply to drinking water quality is progressing on schedule.
Upgrades to the Dimboola Water Treatment Plant and construction of a transfer pipeline from Dimboola to Nhill are complete.
Construction of a new water storage and pump station on the corner of the Western Highway and Nhill Road in Dimboola is complete and is being put into operation this month.
Contractor Halls Gap Plumbing has completed works on the Nhill reticulation network to improve water pressure once the town reticulation is disconnected from the bores and supplied from the water tower.
Managing Director Mark Williams said that air scouring of the town reticulation system would commence in late June, taking approximately one week to complete.
“Customers will be notified directly about works in their particular areas as these may involve some minor interruptions to water supply” he said.
“We remind our Nhill customers that the supply has not yet been declared as drinking water quality and is still unsuitable for human consumption purposes until further notice”.
“The project is progressing very well and we look forward to providing our Nhill customers with a drinking water supply”, said Managing Director, Mark Williams.
Community assets such as the recreation reserve, sporting facilities and central medium strips will continue to be supplied with untreated bore water.
