Kooragang Recycled Water Scheme

Kooragang Industrial Water Scheme

Hunter Water is committed to increasing and maintaining the amount of water that is recycled within industry.

The Kooragang Recycled Water Scheme transfers up to 12 Megalitres (ML) of treated effluent each day from the Shortland Wastewater Treatment Works to an advanced water treatment plant which produces up to 9ML per day of highly treated recycled water for use by industrial customers on Kooragang Island. This scheme results in over 2000ML/year of drinking water being saved.
