We are planning to build a permanent desalination plant at Belmont to help secure our region's water future.
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.
