Winnaleah Treated Water Supply

Consultation has concluded

TasWater has made significant progress on plans to provide fully treated water to its customers in Winnaleah with a new pipeline linking Winnaleah to the new Ringarooma Valley Treated Water Scheme expected to be completed before the end of the year (2016).

TasWater has been working for some time now to address water quality issues in Winnaleah. In June (2015), the TasWater Board decided that the construction of a gravity pipeline between Derby and Winnaleah was the best possible option. Thankfully the topography of the region made the pipeline solution possible.

The Ringarooma Valley Treated Water Scheme was initially designed to provide treated water to the residents of Ringarooma, Legerwood, Branxholm and Derby with water sourced from the Upper Ringarooma Irrigation Scheme. The Winnaleah extension will see water piped through to the existing Winnaleah reservoir from where it will feed into the existing water reticulation network.

Detailed designs for the pipeline have now been completed with a contract expected to be awarded in late July with construction to be completed before the end of the year. The pipeline will be constructed in the road reserve and will follow Derby Station Road, Derby Back Road, Hardmans Lane and Warrentina Road. There is expected to be minimal impact on local residents.

The existing Do Not Consume Notice will remain in place in Winnaleah until the new pipeline has been commissioned and comprehensive water quality tests have been undertaken. The results from these tests will form the basis of TasWater's submission to the Department of Health and Human Services for the Do Not Consume Notice to be lifted.

TasWater will be holding a community information session at the Derby Hall on Thursday, 9 June. Staff will be on hand to answer questions about the Ringarooma Valley Treated Water Scheme and the Winnaleah pipeline project. Feel free to drop by any time between 1pm and 3pm.
