Tumut, New South Wales
Australian Government Funding: $500,000
About the project
This project involved construction of infrastructure to pump treated recycled water from the Tumut sewerage plant to a 4 ML holding dam located on the Tumut Golf Course. The recycled water is being used to irrigate the golf course to replace the use of fresh water drawn from the Tumut River.
This project is:
- replacing the use of 75 ML/yr of fresh water from the Tumut River with recycled water to irrigate the golf course;
- providing a direct environmental benefit by reducing by 150 ML, the amount of treated effluent that is discharged into the Tumut River; and
- reusing at least 150 ML/yr of treated effluent for golf course irrigation and other non-potable uses.
The project is now complete and the final report is available below.
Water Smart Australia projects are funded by the Australian Government's Water for the Future initiative.
