We have built a new three-megalitre concrete tank and booster pump station at Sterry Road, Marong.
The town has experienced water pressure issues for some time, particularly during periods of hot weather when there is increased demand on the network.
We installed temporary tanks in 2019 to help manage water pressure until the commencement of this larger project.
This solution includes two pipelines to be constructed on Sterry Road to connect to the new tank and further pipeline improvements elsewhere in the network, which will benefit Marong.
The new concrete tank has been selected because of its high resilience to bushfire.
