Pormpuraaw’s water supply will be protected through critical upgrades to the water infrastructure, addressing a range of community health and amenity issues.
The project will:
replace leaking and inadequate mains pipelines
chemically clean supply bores and protect them against contamination
protect pumps during heavy rain events
install a new pipeline to a culturally significant area.
The project will allow access to treated water during the wet season, lower the risk of E. coli outbreaks and mitigate calcium and rust issues.
