Phillip Island Recycled Water Scheme
The Federal Government, through its National Water Security Plan for Cities and Towns, awarded a $2.85 million dollar grant to Westernport Water on behalf of the Commonwealth's Water for Future strategy. This grant contribtuion will help fund 50 per cent of the Phillip Island Recycled Water Scheme designed specifically for the production of Class A Water.
The Phillip Island Recycled Water Scheme (PIRWS), is a key component in Westernport Water's integrated water network, designed to manage our water supply more efficiently and help conserve drinking water during high demand periods.
Class A Recycled water has numerous uses being suitable for toilet flushing, garden watering, washing boats and vehicles on grassed areas, fire fighting, as well as irrigating parks, gardens and sporting reserves.
Additionally, there are no capacity restrictions when using Class A recyled water, giving our customers greater flexibility when maintaing their home and property.
