A $28 million upgrade of the Dungog Wastewater Treatment Works (WWTW) has
started with the appointment of the construction contractor, John Holland.
upgrade is a significant investment in the Dungog area and will enable future
population growth in Dungog and will improve our environment.
About the project
The new Dungog WWTW will use modern technology and innovative design,
replacing the almost 90 year old system.
The new work will improve water
quality released from the plant. The
improved water quality will enable increased use of the recycled water which
will reduce the need for water to be released into the Williams River.
We are also investigating building a new wastewater pumping station (WWPS) on Windeyer Street, Dungog, and a new pipeline connecting the pumping station and the treatment works.
The project is not expected to be particularly noisy and we will work to minimize any impacts on the community. Residents may notice some more traffic movements on Alison Road.
The new wastewater treatment work is at the existing Hunter
Water site on Alison Road.
