Advantages of Industrial Reuse

Providing recycled water to industrial customers is an excellent way to save drinking water supplies while reducing the amount of effluent discharged to local waterways. The use of recycled water also presents opportunity for customers to significantly reduce operational costs as recycled water is generally cheaper than drinking water.

Industrial reuse customers such as Eraring Power Station and the Oceanic Coal Washery use approximately 1600ML of recycled water per year.

The current Industrial Reuse Schemes account for 40 per cent of Hunter Water's recycled water use.
