Project announced to improve water quality at four Murchison towns - complete

Water Corporation will install advance water treatment plants in Cue, Meekatharra, Mt Magnet and Sandstone over the next three years.

These new plants will improve the water quality by reducing the naturally high levels of salinity and nitrates that occur in groundwater across the Murchison and will improve aesthetic characteristics such as scaling and hardness.

Household trial in Cue

Households in Cue trialled in-house treatment units which improve aesthetic water quality. Panel members filled out test sheets and provided feedback on their experience.

While the trial did partly succeed, the decision has been made to install a centralised treatment solution to improve the town’s water before it is supplied to customers
