The new Seddon water treatment plant will be officially opened in a couple of weeks, and the $4.4 million facility will be open to the public from 2.00 pm to 6.00 pm on Friday 22 March.
Work on the new treatment plant began in January 2018 and treated water began flowing last October.
Between October and December, the plant operator was tasked with monitoring the new system. Data gathered was passed onto the Drinking Water Assessor who is now the process of assessing the information before he can provide final approval to lift the boil water notice.
Councillor Cynthia Brooks says opening the plant to the public is a major milestone for the town and for all of those who have been involved in the project from the beginning.
“The finishing line is in sight now and Seddon residents are close to being able to drink straight from the tap.”
“We look forward to seeing everyone on Friday 22 March.”
