TasWater is continuing to improve the water quality in remote and regional parts of Tasmania, with works taking place in Zeehan from October.

In Zeehan, TasWater is working to improve the quality of drinking water by closing in the two reservoirs in the town.

One reservoir is already closed in, and TasWater has commenced works to add a roof on the second reservoir, located off Anderson Street in Zeehan.

CAD Project Engineering are contracted for the works.

“While the works are taking place, we will be operating at a reduced storage volume so any measures the community can take to conserve water is appreciated,” TasWater Project Manager, Gerard Tolson, said.

“TasWater does have a number of contingencies in place for the reduction, but any water saving measures in addition to this from the public will be a big help.”

Commencing on 21 October, the works will take five weeks to complete.

“During this period TasWater is emphasising water conservation, and we encourage anybody in the community who notices any leaks to report them,” Mr Tolson said.
