Increasing the amount of water we recycle is vital to Westernport Water becoming more climate resilient. The use of recycled water provides an important weather independent water supply for non-drinking purposes. In addition, we directly reduce the volumes of treated effluent discharged to Bass Strait.
We are committed to achieving a baseline recycled water volume of 267 ML per year. Our plan to do this is set out in our Recycled Water Strategy 2023-26.
