About the project
This project aims to improve the quality and efficient use of the Coonamble water supply, which is not currently filtered, by constructing a suitable water treatment plant to bring the water supply up to the current Australian Drinking Water Standards. As the water supply is not filtered, the reticulation pipelines are flushed regularly to keep it clean, wasting a large.
This project will bring the water supplied to Coonamble up to the accepted Australian standards and reduce water losses caused by flushing the distribution system. The water saved from this project along with the mains replace program (approximately 80ML per year) will remain in the aquifer or will be available to other communities in the region.

The Strengthening Basin Communities program is funded by the Australian Government's Water for the Future initiative.
