Young sewerage effluent reuse scheme
Young Shire Council
About the project
This scheme will develop a reuse scheme to use 230ML per year of recycled effluent water for the watering of Young's golf course and Miller Henry oval. This recycled water will substitute for potable water in the watering of these community facilities.
The reuse of effluent in Young will have three principle positive results being the:
- reduction in demand for potable water
- betterment of the town's facilities, and
- reduction of nutrient laden water discharged to natural waterways.
Further information on this project may be obtained by contacting the Young Shire Council directly on 02 6380 1203.
The Strengthening Basin Communities program is funded by the Australian Government's Water for the Future initiative.
