Recycling water discharge
Recycled water from St Arnaud Wastewater Treatment Plant is flowing into St Arnaud Creek during August and September.
Gwmwater is discharging ‘Class C’ recycled water that meets Environment Protection Authority requirements for use of reclaimed water.
Managing Director Mark Williams said rain had led to a significant rise in water held in storage at the plant.
“The discharge is not expected to create any adverse environmental impacts,” he said.
Gwmwater has developed management plans detailing proposed discharges and a water-quality monitoring program and results will be available on the corporation’s website.
Gwmwater has invited the community keen to discuss the program to call staff during business hours on 1300 659 961 or visit website at www. gwmwater.org.au.
