Repairs to the Croydon Water Treatment Plant scheduled to commence from 15 January 2021

Croydon Shire Council will be carrying out repairs and installing new components at the Croydon Water Treatment Plant from 15 January 2021. The specialised work is expected to take approximately two (2) weeks and during this time the provision of water will bypass the Water Treatment Plant and not be treated. This work will solve the problems we have been having with old filtration units and the installation of new filters will guarantee excellent water quality and extend the life of the Water Treatment Plant by 20 years. Please see link to public notice below for further details.
