Recycled Water Grant Program

Please contact Nick Stevens, 
Wastewater and Sustainability Officer by email to discuss future projects and support –

Under the 2020-21 Recycled Water Grant Program, Westernport Water is offering funds to connect to and/or distribute recycled water via the Class A distribution network on Phillip Island.

Westernport Water’s Recycled Water Grant Program is designed to help local business and not for profit organisations invest in connecting to the existing recycled water network, improve the overall water efficiency of their business, support economic development and help customers prepare for climate variability.

The grant can be claimed for 75% of the cost of a project, up to a maximum sum of $10,000 (e.g. If the project costs $10,000 the business will contribute $2,500 and Westernport Water will grant $7,500). Grants are subject to funding availability.

Projects that demonstrate a marked improvement in their business’ water efficiency and can deliver noticeable water savings or economic growth as a result of connection will be viewed favourably.
