Leeton Shire Council has three (3) water supply systems with reticulated services.
The Leeton Water Supply System supplies Leeton township, Yanco and Wamoon. The supply of water is from the Murrumbidgee Irrigation system which is fed from the Murrumbidgee River via the “Main Canal” from Berembed Weir, upstream from Narrandera. Water for Leeton is drawn from the canal system, and stored in an in-ground open earth reservoir, with a capacity of 240 megalitres.
Raw water is pumped from the in-ground open earth reservoir to the Leeton Water Treatment Plant in Acacia Avenue/Racecourse Road.
The treatment process in Leeton Water Treatment Plant consists of coagulation – flocculation, sedimentation, filtration, fluoridation and chlorination. The drinking water from the water treatment plant is pumped into the reticulation system as well as to four reservoirs (Chelmsford Place, Mountford Park, Central Park, and Wattle Hill) which is then reticulated to the properties in Leeton Township, Yanco and Wamoon.
Water for Whitton is supplied from an extension of the Gogeldrie Branch Canal with an offtake into an in-ground storage facility, having a total capacity of approximately 20 megalitres.
Raw water is gravitated to an earthen ground storage tank from an irrigation supply channel and from there it is pumped to the treatment plant. The treatment process consists of coagulation – flocculation, sedimentation, filtration and chlorination. Drinking water is then pumped through arising main into the reticulated system.
A Water Treatment Plant and reticulation system supplies potable drinking water to the Murrami village. and has recently been extended to provide water to the Murrami School. Murrami is supplied through an open channel system from the Main Canal. The water is pumped into a lagoon sedimentation system, and stored in a 12 megalitres in-ground storage reservoir. The treatment process consists of coagulation – flocculation, lagoon sedimentation, glass filtration and chlorination. Drinking water is pumped from the storage dam to two reservoirs which feed the village by a gravity system.
