Maranoa Regional Council water saving initiatives program 2009
Maranoa Regional Council
About the project
This project will assist council to operate water utilities more efficiently by reducing the amount of water lost in the network and employing demand management techniques to conserve supply.
Council plans to address these issues by effectively reusing/recycling water from Roma and Injune Sewerage Treatment Plants. Recycling the waste water from the Treatment Plants will greatly reduce the demand on potable water supplies and help educate the community on the benefits and options of water reuse.
The proposed water savings initiatives program will benefit the region through recycling the waste water from the Roma and Injune Sewerage Treatment Plants will greatly reduce the demand on our potable water supplies and help educate the community on the benefits/options of water reuse.
This project was completed in November 2011. The reconfiguration of the Imhoff sprayers at the Roma and Injune Sewerage Treatments Plants has resulted in the Maranoa Regional Council saving approximately 77ML of potable water a year. The Council has installed meters on the reuse components at the plants to track the usage of the reconfigurations and to enable Council staff to record the offset of potable water saving amounts.

The Strengthening Basin Communities program is funded by the Australian Government's Water for the Future initiative.
