Project update for Murchison towns water quality improvements

over 1 year ago

Water Corporation is progressing work to improve water quality in the communities of Cue, Sandstone, Meekatharra and Mount Magnet through installation of advanced water treatment plants in each town.

The advanced water treatment reduces 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.

We have been working through detailed planning and design for the project to ensure these towns receive the highest quality water the plants can produce.

The treatment plants will be installed by mid-2020, which is within our original timeframe for this project.
