Westernport Water is striving to deliver better tasting water

Every year, we are making improvements to our treatment process and undertaking maintenance activities, such as flushing and air scouring, to ensure that our pipes are kept clean and our water is as fresh as possible. Our team is implementing a number of improvements to our water purification processes which includes:

  • installation of a vertical profiler in Candowie Reservoir to increase understanding of raw water and to provide early warning of changes to water quality
  • an upgrade to the Powder Activated Carbon treatment process to improve the taste of water
  • a water quality database to analyse trends to optimise the treatment process.

Project budget


Where is this happening?

  • Candowie Reservoir
  • Backflow prevention – farms, industrial and commercial properties
  • Water mains cleaning – all Westernport Water service areas

How will this impact the community?

We will continue to ensure that your water is safe to drink by regularly testing and monitor the quality of our water.


  • Works or Installation

    Powder Activated Carbon Upgrade Tender is going to market in early 2020. It will further remove organics and improve the taste of water.
