What's happening

To improve the water quality and provide a more secure water supply for customers in the town of Merredin, we are constructing a new 42 million litre water storage tank along Great Eastern Highway, near Crooks Road.

The work includes converting the existing reservoir to an overflow area for the new tank, a new chemical dosing facility, extending the existing access road from the Merredin Pump Station site to the new tank site and construction of pipework connecting to the new tank. 

 

Project update - February 2022

The construction of the tank is now complete, with the concrete roof slab poured in December 2021.

Works scheduled for early 2022 include installation of the new chemical dosing facility, electrical works, site drainage, asphalting of the tank's access track, fencing and construction of the remaining tank pipework.

Commissioning of the new tank is expected to begin in mid-2022.
