Westernport Water will be releasing flows of treated effluent into Guys Creek at Corinella, following approval from Victorian Environmental Protection Authority.
Treated effluent from the King Road Wastewater Treatment Plant is stored over winter and recycled to Westernport Water land through irrigation in the summer. Due to higher than average rainfalls this year, incoming flows have also significantly increased. This has resulted in Westernport Water’s onsite winter storage nearing full capacity.
Westernport Water will be releasing approximately 100 to 150 ML of treated effluent over a 120 day period at a maximum of 5ML a day under the approval of the Environment Protection Authority.
Westernport Water will be undertaking monitoring and sampling throughout this period and expects minimal impact due to the quality and dilution of the water being discharged.
Downstream landholders have been advised of this process and will continue to be informed during the 120 day approval period.
