Work is underway on the detailed design for a $1.2 million water recycling scheme attached to the Gloucester Sewage Treatment Plant, to meet conditions imposed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
This scheme will see approximately 98 million litres of treated recycled water used for agricultural recycling each year, reducing the amount of the treated water returned to the Gloucester River.
It is expected construction will start late this year and be completed mid next year. This will include modifications to the sewage treatment plant as well as the construction of an irrigation system on a nearby agricultural area.
