Major water announcement

The Deputy Prime Minister, Michael McCormack, and the New South Wales Water Minister, Melinda Pavey, have announced Enviropacific as the winning tenderer for a major water treatment plant in central west New South Wales.

According to the local Corowa Guardian newspaper, the Deputy Prime Minister said the contract to build a water treatment plant at Wyangala Dam had been awarded to “accomplished Australian Infrastructure service provider Enviropacific.”

“Enviropacific has previously delivered water treatment facilities for Barangaroo, NorthConnex, Gold Coast and Melbourne Airports, the Victorian Police, State Emergency Service and Country Fire Service training facility in Bangholme Victoria,” Mr McCormack said.

The NSW Water Minister said access to an abundant supply of clean drinking water is absolutely essential for the people in our towns and communities.

“Planning for the water treatment plant is progressing well and next steps include finalising the detailed design and planning approvals. Construction is expected to start later this year,” Ms Pavey said.

Mayor of Cowra Shire Council Bill West was at the formal announcement in Cowra this afternoon.

“This is a very welcome by-product of the Wyangala Dam Wall Raising project and will have enormous benefits for the local community,” Cr West said.

While the Deputy PM wasn’t in attendance, CEO David Tucker and National Water Manager Sagar Adhikari were.

“We look forward to getting to work and enhancing the supply of safe clean drinking water to the residents of central west New South Wales,” Mr Tucker said.
