We operate seven recycled water plants, with each treating wastewater and producing recycled water to a Class A, Class B or Class C standard. Recycled water is supplied to customers via pipelines, standpipes and through farm leases.
Recycled water explained
Recycled water is wastewater that has been collected and treated so that it can be used again for a variety of purposes.
Class A Recycled Water
Class A is the highest quality of recycled water. It's supplied to residential customers for toilet flushing, garden watering, car washing and other outdoor uses.
Class B & C Recycled Water
Class B & C recycled water can replace the need to use drinking water for a number of commercial and agricultural applications.
Piped recycled water supply
Each of Western Water's recycled water plants has a recycled water scheme attached to it, with the exception of Bacchus Marsh. The Sunbury-Melton scheme is our longest pipeline.
Carting recycled water
Recycled water carters are vehicles that are registered to draw water from Western Water’s recycled water supply network.
