The Crookwell Water Treatment Plant project has passed a significant construction milestone with the delivery of two large custom fabricated process vessels, each valued at over $650,000, to the site.

Deputy Premier, John Barilaro, said this project is an important step in increasing water security for Crookwell. The NSW Government is contributing $6 million to this upgrade project. Each process vessel can treat two million litres of water per day, with a process including floatation filtration to separate sediment from the water.

Member for Goulburn, Pru Goward, said she was very thankful for the hard work of Upper Lachlan Shire Council, which is managing this project and has contributed an additional $1 million in funding towards the upgrade.

Upper Lachlan Shire Councillor Paul Culhane inspected the site with Ms Goward last week, said the project is a significant investment in Crookwell’s future.

“On behalf of Council I would like to thank the NSW Government for their contribution to this vital project.”
