    TasWater is planning to upgrade the existing Blackmans Bay Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) as part of the overall Kingborough Sewerage Upgrade Project.

    This existing STP has been operating for 30 years and is nearing the end of its service life. An upgrade will improve its environmental performance, bringing it in line with modern standards and allowing TasWater to enhance the Kingborough sewerage system.

    The upgraded Blackmans Bay STP will offer a significant improvement in odour and noise in comparison to the existing STP, and increase capacity to treat a higher volume of sewage to a better quality with more reliability... Continue reading

    The upgraded Blackmans Bay STP will offer a significant improvement in odour and noise in comparison to the existing STP, and increase capacity to treat a higher volume of sewage to a better quality with more reliability – accommodating future growth in Kingborough.

    As a result of TasWater’s ongoing preparation of the Development Proposal and Environmental Management Plan (DPEMP) our environmental studies have determined that no significant impacts are expected and that the approvals process will remain at a state and local government level, rather than requiring Commonwealth approval.

    TasWater is hosting community information sessions about the upgrade to the Blackmans Bay STP at The Salvation Army Hall, 3 Opal Drive, Blackmans Bay on

    ·Saturday, 19 November 2016 between 9am and 12pm and

    ·Thursday, 24 November 2016 between 3pm and 6pm

    Please note these dates have changed from what was previously advised

  • Plan to repair Swansea Dam announced

    7 months ago
    20160602 130007

    The seepage issues at the Swansea Dam will be resolved by Spring 2018 at the earliest, under a plan announced by TasWater. The timeline of repairs will depend on several factors including Tasmania's east coast experiencing normal rainfall over the next two years.

    When TasWater drains the dam to repair it, there must be an alternative water supply for Swansea. Finding the best option for this supply is the first step in a flexible series of projects to repair the dam as soon as possible.

    The Kingborough Sewerage Upgrade project includes the construction of a pipeline from Electrona to Blackmans Bay and a significant upgrade of the Blackmans Bay Sewage Treatment Plant. This will increase its capacity to support continued growth in the region and improve the quality of discharge effluent, allowing TasWater to remove three ageing treatment plants at Electrona, Margate and Howden.

    In addition to the five pipeline route options that have been identified as technically feasible for the new sewage pipeline, a sixth option has been added. This option was proposed by members of the community as an option during recent consultation... Continue reading

    In addition to the five pipeline route options that have been identified as technically feasible for the new sewage pipeline, a sixth option has been added. This option was proposed by members of the community as an option during recent consultation activities. TasWater has agreed to the additional pipeline route and this option is shown as the 'black route'. The newsletter and feedback form have been updated to reflect this addition.

    TasWater has now listed an updated newsletter and updated ‘black route’ map in the ‘Images’ section on the project’s website.

    You are invited to provide your feedback before 15 April 2016. An online feedback form is available on the website.

    While the final decision for pipeline routes and sewage treatment plant upgrade rests with TasWater, community feedback is important and will be taken into consideration.
