Quality drinking water for Coongulla and Glenmaggie
Gippsland Water has begun investigating options to improve the security of Coongulla and Glenmaggie’s water supply.
The water for both towns is currently sourced from Lake Glenmaggie and treated at the Coongulla Water Treatment plant.
Gippsland Water General Manager Customer and Community Paul Clark said that the water corporation is exploring a range of options to ensure that Coongulla and Glenmaggie continue to enjoy high quality drinking water into the future.
“We’re still in the very early stages of this project. We know that the water treatment plant will need to be upgraded soon, but we’re also looking at alternative opportunities,” he said.
“Whatever the outcome of our investigations, we’re committed to providing beautiful, clean water, and keeping the community informed,” he added.
Gippsland Water staff and contractors will conduct environmental and cultural heritage assessments, field surveys, and investigation work in the area over the coming months to assist in planning for the project. Relevant landowners have been contacted.
This project was flagged for delivery in 2018-2023 in Gippsland Water’s price submission to the Essential Services Commission.
