Drilling on a second bore got underway this week at Aqwest’s new water treatment plant at Glen Iris.
Contractors Welldrill drilled 450m down into the Yarragadee Aquifer to source water which dates back to the Jurassic period. The second bore will be a back up to the first bore which was drilled in 2010.
The treatment plant is being commissioned and tested ahead of being brought online into Bunbury’s water network in May.
It is capable of producing 10 megalitres of drinking water per day and will secure a sustainable water supply for Aqwest’s customers into the future.
