Black Rock open day draws a crowd

Around 280 people got an insight into how Geelong's sewage is treated at the Black Rock Water Reclamation Plant open day on Sunday 18 March 2012.

Black Rock is our largest water reclamation plant, processing sewage from as far away as Lara, Queenscliff and Torquay as well as the suburbs of Geelong.

The day drew a steady crowd of all ages, including couples, families, students and retirees.

The tour began in the visitor information centre, where visitors learned how the plant operates and the treatment processes used. Groups then had an opportunity to see the plant first-hand on a walking tour.

Visitors were able to see construction works on the new recycled water plant that will provide Class A recycled water to Armstrong Creek and North Torquay, as well as the recently completed biosolids drying facility.
