Yass Water Treatment Plant Upgrade Project Council received a progress update on the options for the Yass Water Treatment Plant Upgrade Project. Council endorsed as its preferred option the design and construction of a new water treatment plant option with the estimated project cost of $31.9 million, as it addresses the colour, odour and hardness water quality issues and minimises the risk to the town water supply during construction of the upgrade works. In addition, Council noted that a new water treatment plant would allow for the incorporation of alternate technologies and capacity and seeks early advice from the consultants of the potential for incorporating these technologies into the detailed design options. Council will be pursuing additional funding to implement the preferred option for the Water Treatment Plant.
