Fresh water for Burrinjuck Waters by November
Parliamentary Secretary for Southern NSW, Katrina Hodgkinson has announced that Burrinjuck Waters holiday park at Yass will soon be able to enjoy fresh drinking water thanks to a new water treatment plant due to be completed by November.
“The installation of the $600,000 water treatment plant is being managed by the NSW Crown Holiday Parks Trust,” Ms Hodgkinson said.
“The Burrinjuck water treatment plant is part of a $12 million program funded by the NSW Government’s Public Reserves Management Fund to upgrade and renew utilities at the inland parks managed by the trust.
“Work on a $1.6 million sewer upgrade project at Burrinjuck is also due to start this month and be completed by the end of the year.
“RD Miller Pty Ltd has been awarded the contract for this project which will provide a compliant sewer system, including a new reticulation and pump station, to the park’s infrastructure.
“Adding power, sewerage and water to inland parks like Burrinjuck Waters is incredibly important and the new water treatment plant will be critical in providing potable water to Australian Drinking Water Standards.
“Burrinjuck Waters is a stunning part of New South Wales and having fresh drinking water available at such an important recreational destination is a good thing for the region and its tourism industry.
“The trust is investing over $1million on new water treatment plants at Burrinjuck Waters and Copeton Waters holiday park near Inverell.”
