Wa­ter dis­charge

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Gwmwa­ter is dis­charg­ing re­cy­cled wa­ter into Wim­mera and Hop­kins rivers.

Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Mark Williams said wa­ter from Hor­sham and Ararat wastew­a­ter treat­ment plants go­ing into the rivers was ‘Class C’ and met En­vi­ron­ment Pro­tec­tion Author­ity re­quire­ments.

He said rain had led to a sig­nif­i­cant rise to wa­ter held in stor­age in the plants and wet-weather dis­charges would oc­cur through­out Au­gust.

“The dis­charge is not ex­pected to create any ad­verse en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pacts,” Mr Williams said.

Gwmwa­ter has de­vel­oped man­age­ment plans de­tail­ing pro­posed dis­charges and a wa­ter-qual­ity mon­i­tor­ing pro­gram and de­tails will be avail­able on Gwmwa­ter’s web­site.

Gwmwa­ter is en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple keen to dis­cuss de­tails to con­tact them dur­ing busi­ness hours on 1300 659 961 or on­line at www.gwmwa­ter.org.au
