WORKS to renew the town water main at Maydena are expected to be completed next month, TasWater’s Capital Delivery Office announced today.
The town received a new water treatment plant several years ago under TasWater’s 24 Glasses Regional Towns Water Supply Program, which removed public health alerts from 29 Tasmanian communities including several in the upper Derwent Valley.
“To further improve the town’s water supply and network’s reliability, water main renewal and reticulation improvements commenced in September last year,” TasWater CDO project team leader Darren Meany said.
Mr Meany said the project would improve the water network’s reliability and performance once complete. “Renewing the town’s water mains, which are the primary pipes in a water supply system, will ensure Maydena has updated infrastructure that will reduce the likelihood of breaks or leaks occurring,” he said. “As part of the renewal program, we are installing new fire hydrants which improves reliability for firefighting and protection of the local community.”
“MS Civil, a Tasmanian-based civil construction company is delivering the project. The Maydena water main renewal is just one of the many projects TasWater is delivering to improve public health and environmental outcomes for the state,” Mr Meany said. “We thank the community for their patience while this work is undertaken. The water main renewal is expected to be completed by February.”
