What we achieved:

  • Part 4 of the DWSNZ (Treatment plant)
  • Part 4 of the DWSNZ (Distribution zone)
  • Part 7 of the DWSNZ (Cyanotoxin compliance)
  • Part 8 of the DWSNZ (Chemical compliance)

What we didn't achieve:

  •  Part 5 of the DWSNZ (Protozoa compliance, process only)

Why we didn't achieve them:

  • Missing some data from online instruments
  • The UV strength being below the required level in some of the samples obtained
  • The required amount of UV manual samples not obtained during some weeks

How we're addressing it:

  • Upgrading our communication network between instruments at the treatment plant and our IT systems so that data cannot go missing
  •  District wide we have invested over $2 million to date, to upgrade treatment plant instruments and processes with more money to follow
  • Improving internal processes to ensure the required number of UV manual samples are taken
