Branxton Irrigation Water Scheme Kicks Off

Hunter Water initiated a recycled water project to deliver irrigation water to the Vintage Golf Club, Branxton Golf Club and farmers in the Cessnock area through a $48 million recycled water scheme under the Lower Hunter Recycled Water Initiative. This recycled water scheme involved a major upgrade of the Branxton Wastewater Treatment plants and installation of 10km of recycled water pipeline to provide a reliable water supply for irrigation. The upgrade of the plant saw the first use of Membrane Bio Reactor technology in the Hunter, providing a technologically advanced process that produces a very high quality of recycled water. This scheme allowed for up to 410 million litres of recycled water to be delivered to businesses each year.
