Avoca water joy

Just a day after Mole Creek's long standing boil alert was lifted, TasWater's given the all clear for Avoca's tap water in the Fingal Valley.

Since late 2012, the town of around 120 people was under a do not consume notice because of heavy metals in the supply.

A 29 kilometre pipeline from the Fingal water treatment plant costing $3.3 million has now fixed the problem.

Mayor of the Northern Midlands and TasWater’s Chief Owners’ Representative David Downie's expressed his delight.

"This project has been brought in $1.4 million under budget and is an example of a project that's been built for fit for purpose, it's clever engineering, the pipe is not too big and not too little, it'll provide the right amount of water for the size of the town."
