Project to be completed by mid to late 2020Treatment plants for all four towns will be installed by mid to late 2020, which is within our original timeframe for this project.
Project announced to improve water quality at four Murchison towns - completeWater 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 CueHouseholds 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
