Yass Water Treatment Plant

The first water treatment facility was constructed in 1938 and was upgraded in 1990. The upgrade facility includes a dissolved air floatation (DAF) system of treatment together with rapid gravity sand filtration. This Plant was designed to treat 13 ML per day. This treatment plant presently services approximately 7,500 people.

Improving Yass water

Council recognises that the potability of Yass water is an issue for local residents.

While the water supply is safe to consume, it is affected by water hardness, dissolved solids, high organic matter, iron and manganese; causing the varying taste and colour long experienced by local residents.

Council has been successful in securing a grant under the Housing Acceleration Fund (Restart NSW) to fully fund a $1,200,000 project to prepare the detailed design and final business case required for the construction of a new Water Treatment Plant and upgrades to our existing Water Treatment plant.

This work is underway and is scheduled for completion by October 2020. Following completion of this design and business case, Council will prepare a further submission to the State Government to fully fund the construction of this work.
