    Digesters %282%29

    TasWater is undertaking further works at the Ti Tree Bend Sewage Treatment Plant (STP). In December 2016 we cleaned out Digester No. 1 to ensure the effective treatment of sewage at the plant. We now intend to clean Digester No. 2 during November and December. The digesters play a critical role in the sewage treatment process, treating the solids collected and producing a by-product that it suitable for re-use.

  • Water meter renewal program

    Dsc 3001
    TasWater’s water meter renewal team is rolling out a state-wide program to install new, second generation meters into customer properties across Tasmania. Renewal works will roll around the state and are anticipated to run until 2019.

    TasWater has around 40,000 meters that are over six years old and this program will see these meters replaced. The aim at the end of this program is that our 20-40mm water meter fleet will not be older than 2011.

    TasWater will be installing second generation meters that use the latest technology and meet the latest Australian standards. They also detect lower flow rates... Continue reading

    TasWater’s water meter renewal team is rolling out a state-wide program to install new, second generation meters into customer properties across Tasmania. Renewal works will roll around the state and are anticipated to run until 2019.

    TasWater has around 40,000 meters that are over six years old and this program will see these meters replaced. The aim at the end of this program is that our 20-40mm water meter fleet will not be older than 2011.

    TasWater will be installing second generation meters that use the latest technology and meet the latest Australian standards. They also detect lower flow rates than older meters, which will help with leak detection on private property, if necessary.

    TasWater rolled out first generation meters with its renewal program that started in 2011. This next renewal program moves us to the next generation of meters.
    All mechanical meters currently in operation around the state are more prone to decay than the newer electronic models.

    Second generation meters can be read remotely along with our first generation meters, significantly reducing the time and resources required for meter reading. It also means TasWater staff will not need to access private property as often. They are more sensitive to lower flow rates, which can help detect leaks within private plumbing.

    Part of this program also involves replacing older water meter boxes that contain asbestos. These asbestos boxes will be replaced with new, standard meter boxes by specialist crews working with TasWater. The specialist contractor will be using appropriate protective equipment to conduct this work ahead of meter installation and the area around the water meter will be fully fenced for safety.

    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

    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 – 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

  • Plan to repair Swansea Dam announced

    over 1 year 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.
