CORRYONG and Cudgewa residents will soon see a big difference in the quality of their water.
A $5.2 million water treatment plant being built on Greenwattle Gap Road is expected to be on tap in March.
It will service more than 1400 people at about 840 properties.
Tests are being made ahead of a transition from the old system that involved Hamilton Hill reservoir storing raw water from Nariel Creek.
Manager of the new plant Craig Heiner said the covered storage would improve water quality.
“The plant’s dissolved air flotation and filtration process will remove contaminants that previous systems couldn’t remove,” Mr Heiner said.
“The system, along with chlorine disinfection, will ensure a safe water supply for both communities for many years to come.”
The pipes will be flushed when the plant comes online but water produced in that process will be safe to drink.
