Where does my water come from?
Is my water treated?
Online monitoring through System Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) provides information about the water treatment, such as chlorine. This system checks that water parameters stay within set values for 24 hours every day and will alert the Plant Operator if anything changes.
Where is my water stored?
Treated water is piped from the storage reservoir to Owhango township and surrounding rural properties. The Owhango Water Supply reticulation network consists of 30km pipeline. The entire network is gravity supplied. Most pipes are 32mm and 50mm in diameter and are made of plastic (uPVC). Rural properties are metered.
Flow through the scheme is shown in the figure below.
