Hunter River Estuary Wastewater Masterplan

The Hunter River Estuary Wastewater Masterplan will help guide wastewater management from five wastewater treatment works over the next 30 years.

A reach of the Hunter River
Five of our region’s major treatment plants in Farley, Kurri Kurri, Raymond Terrace, Morpeth and Shortland release treated wastewater to the Hunter River Estuary. All five plants will likely reach capacity within five to 15 years.

We need to invest in upgrading the facilities to ensure they are ready to meet future population and industrial growth. The purpose of the Masterplan is to understand how to maximise any investment we make to ensure we get the best outcome for the Hunter River Estuary, the community and our customers.
