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.
Class A recycled water is supplied to homes in Eynesbury and Toolern via a piped supply from the Melton Recycled Water Plant. Read more.
Farm leases exist at Western Water's Sunbury, Melton, Romsey and Bacchus Marsh Recycled Water Plants. Recycled water entitlements are included in these farm leases and the water is used for approved agricultural purposes.
Commercial, industrial, Council, agricultural and some residential customers may be able to access recycled water via a piped supply as part of one of Western Water's recycled water schemes.
