Water plant tours

July 12, 2017

Goulburn Valley Water is offering free tours of its treatment plant in Tatura after a boil notice was issued in May this year.

Goulburn Valley Water will offer free tours of the Tatura Water Treatment Plant to interested members of the community tomorrow.

The tours come after a boil water notice was issued for the town in May.

During this time residents were required to boil their drinking and bathing water for a period of two days.

Upon the notice being lifted, GV Water technical services general manager Steven McKenzie said they had not been able to identify the cause of the detected bacteria after ruling out several different possibilities.

GV Water education officer Kristy Elrington said the tour was a way for customers to learn more about the treatment process and how GV Water provided safe drinking water that met health standards.

‘‘The guided tour will cover where Tatura’s water comes from, how it is treated, how it gets from the treatment plant to your house and where it ends up,’’ Ms Elrington said.

GV Water’s senior water treatment plant operator Wes Wilkie and operations and maintenance employee Warren Gaylard will also be on site to discuss what their roles were behind the scene during the boil water event.

■The tour will be held tomorrow, Wednesday, July 12, and bookings are essential.

To book, phone Kristy on 58324869 or email her at [email protected]
