Warrumiyanga water supply

A $4.3m water supply system upgrade at Warramiyanga (Nguiu) has ensured the community has enough water to meet future needs.

Two additional water supply bores have been established, improving water supply security to meet the Major Remote Town's increasing needs. 

A 1.8 million litre water storage tank has been installed on a hill outside town to provide additional water storage and improve water pressure in the community.

The project included installation of two water treatment systems to improve the quality of the drinking water. The chlorine system was upgraded to ensure efficient protection against microbiological contamination and a flouridation system added to achieve optimum levels of fluoride in the water and improve oral health.
