Cohuna water quality - taste and odour
We are currently experiencing poor raw water quality in the supply source for the Cohuna Water Treatment Plant.
As a result, customers may notice a change to the taste and odour of the town drinking water.
There are no health risks associated with the town water supply. It is safe for all drinking, bathing and food preparation purposes and it continues to comply with all health-based guideline values in the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.
Treatment measures are in place to minimise the impact to the town drinking water supply. However, until raw water quality improves we are unable to completely remove the taste and odour impacts.
We will provide further updates as needed.

A purpose-built storage area is being constructed at the Elmore site for the biosolids storage.
We have notified the EPA and local residents about this project.
There will be increased truck movements on Trewin Road via the Elmore-Barnadown Road during this time.
