Aqwest invests in the future

Published Date:09 Oct 2020

Aqwest’s latest investment in a major new water treatment plant will secure a high quality, sustainable water supply for Greater Bunbury into the future.

The Ngoora Moolinap water treatment plant in Glen Iris can produce 12 megalitres of water a day – equivalent to five Olympic swimming pools.

The plant pumps water from the Yarragadee Aquifer, a large fresh water source located deep underground, supplying water to Aqwest’s 35,000 customers.

The location of the new plant is further inland, away from the interface between the fresh water of the Yarragadee and the Indian Ocean, which reduces the risk of seawater affecting water quality.

This modern water production facility will deliver greater water production cost efficiencies, providing benefits to customers.
