A Sustainable Water Future for Tasmania

Tasmania’s population growth, economic development and ageing infrastructure are driving the need for increased investment in TasWater’s infrastructure to ensure customers receive safe and reliable water supplies for their thriving communities.

To help TasWater support a sustainable water future and in meeting community expectations; an alliance partnership consisting of TasWater, WSP, UGL and CPB Contractors will deliver infrastructure planning, project development and management of capital works across their asset network. The alliance has a strong commitment to the local supply chain in utilising and building local capability and capacity by prioritising local business participation throughout the program.


Dean Toomey, Director of Water at WSP says, “TasWater’s capital investments will provide sustainable services to Tasmania’s thriving communities. Together – WSP, UGL and CPB Contractors – bring proven processes, systems and diverse expertise that will enable a step change in delivering essential water services with support from the local supply chain. This approach will not only strengthen TasWater but further build a sustainable future for local industry and its communities.


“WSP’s long-standing strength in the delivery of multidisciplinary programs will hold us in good stead in Tasmania. This is demonstrated by our work on two of the largest wastewater treatment programs currently in Australia – Logan Water Infrastructure Alliance in Queensland and Lower South Creek Treatment Program in New South Wales (NSW), as well as a similar program partnership approach in the Hunter region in NSW.”


The alliance has started to mobilise and we are seeking interest to fill a range of roles including planning, design, drafting, design management, engineering management, project management and community engagement.
