The condition and level of treatment provided by the existing sewerage infrastructure
and treatment facilities in Launceston is unsatisfactory by today's standards. An
improvement of the standard of treatment of wastewater, and a reduction of the
frequency and severity of overflows cannot be achieved without significant
infrastructure upgrades and modifications.
A number of options have been considered, however it is obvious that two particular
options warrant more detailed investigation. The options nominated involve a
regional approach and a reduction in the overall number of wastewater treatment
plants. The rationalisation will incur higher capital costs, however lower overall
operating costs dictate that rationalisation will provide an economical long term
