Water & Waste Projects
Council aims to meet our community's water and waste needs in a financially and environmentally sustainable manner. Current projects underway include:
Council has an annual capital works program for manhole rehabilitation works.
The Marlin Coast Recycled Water Scheme involves the delivery of high quality recycled water from the upgraded Marlin Coast Wastewater Treatment Plant for irrigation purposes to nearby Schools and Golf Courses respectively and the treatment and delivery of recycled water to an “A+” class standard to be used for toilet flushing and outdoor water use, through residential dual reticulation networks.
As part of ongoing maintenance of the sewer reticulation network, Council has an annual capital works program for insitu sewer relining.
Council delivers an on-going program of water meter replacement across the region. This ensures that water consumption is correctly recorded and accurate water accounts are issued.
