Potable Water

Some of the non-potable water is further treated using granular activated carbon filtration, reverse osmosis desalination and finally disinfected with addition of sodium hypochlorite solution (chlorination). The treated potable water is stored in a tank at the treatment plant for customers to use.

Chlorination is the most commonly used form of drinking water disinfection and has been used for more than 100 years to protect practically all Australian water supplies, including Perth.

The potable water produced by Lancelin South Water is regularly tested by a NATA accredited laboratory to ensure it meets the requirements of the Department of Health and the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (ADWG).
