Sale Water Treatment Plant open to the public

In a move to showcase some of the things it does behind the scenes, Gippsland Water will open up the Sale Water Treatment Plant to the public during this October’s National Water Week.

“We’ll be running guided tours of the Sale facility on Saturday the 22nd of October from 9.30am for community members interested in seeing first-hand how their drinking water is cleaned and delivered to their homes,” said General Manager of Customer Service and Communications, Paul Clark.

“Those who attend will get to see a working treatment plant in action, and have all their questions about their water supplies answered by experienced staff,” Paul continued.

In recent years the Sale Water Treatment Plant has been upgraded with the construction of a contact tank, new aeration towers and new chemical dosing facility.

“All of these investments have improved our reliability of service and taste of the Sale water supply”.

As well as investment in the plant, Gippsland Water has invested a further $2 million in providing a second water supply line into the town ensuring continuity of supply to customers.

“These sorts of days are an important way of letting people know what we do and showing them where their money goes in terms of assets we both build and manage for the community,” said Paul.

Due to OH&S regulations visitors touring the site will be required to wear long pants, long shirts and closed toe shoes. Those wishing to take part in a tour are asked to register their interest by calling 1800 050 500 or via the Gippsland Water website
