Seddon District Council has planned a new water treatment plant budgeted at $4.4 m that will provide clean drinking water to 200 homes in the township.
The plant would provide compliance with the national drinking water standards and enable the township’s boil water notice to be reviewed and lifted. Once the plant has been built, council will consult with surrounding rural property owners regarding the installation of household treatment devices that treat unfiltered water directly at each property.
The water treatment plant is being partly funded by a $1m government subsidy and council reserves. The remaining costs being met by a capped annual charge for households on the Seddon water scheme, and in a charge spread across the region’s rated bill.
