Our major infrastructure and environmental projects
The Farley WWTW upgrade will ensure we can continue to cater for our community and the population growth expected between now and 2032.
We are upgrading the Wastewater Treatment Works to improve the performance of the plant and meet the projected population growth for the area between now and 2040.
We are exploring options to install solar power panels on our sites to reduce our impact on the environment and reduce our electricity bills.
The NSW Government and Hunter Water are delivering a $30 million project to provide sewer services to properties in the Wyee township.
Recycled water will soon be supplied to residents in Thornton North with recycled water (purple) meters. This project is an extension of the scheme which provides recycled water to approximately 1,000 customers in Chisholm and Gillieston Heights.
Have your say
We are seeking planning approval for the possible construction of a drought response desalination plant at Belmont. This is our insurance policy in case of unprecedented drought conditions.
We are developing a Hunter River Estuary Wastewater Masterplan to guide how wastewater from five wastewater treatment works is managed over the next 30 years.
Understanding what our community values will inform our decisions around supply (where we get water from) and demand (how we use the water we have) options, and guide how we respond to drought.
A drought response desalination plant at Belmont is our insurance policy if the Lower Hunter reaches critical water storage levels in severe drought conditions.
