Construction is now complete on Hunter Water's 30 million litre clear water storage tank near Dungog Water Treatment Plant, set to increase water reserves in Dungog by six times.
Contractor AJ Lucas Operations Pty Ltd has completed work on the $12 million clear water tank, helping to deliver a more secure water supply for local residents.
With construction complete, Hunter Water has worked with residents to develop a landscaping plan which will include vegetative screening between sensitive viewpoints and the tank. This revegetation will also provide environmental benefits once the vegetation matures.
Hunter Water began construction of the Dungog clear water storage tank in March 2010 and this phase of the project supported a number of jobs in the Hunter.
This project forms part of Hunter Water's unprecedented $700 million capital works program of new infrastructure projects including pipes, mains, pumping stations, reservoirs, treatment plants, sewers and water recycling facilities.
