The production bore has been established at its final depth of 299m, and that work was completed in October 2023. Staff are expecting final pump testing results by the end of January, which will see the completion of the bore.

Staff are now working with two engineering companies to establish which of the two treatment processes will be the most suitable and cost-efficient process for Marton based on the water quality. This is taking longer than hoped for and an engagement of one of the parties is expected by February 2024.This makes the goal of a new operational treatment plant by December 2024 a lot more challenging to achieve.

However, some residents have noticed an improved difference in the quality of the water coming through their taps since the Marton Water Supply Strategy has been underway, and once completed, Marton will be provided with pleasant tasting and smelling potable water.
