Forrest wastewater project announced

Barwon Water and Colac Otway Shire Council will partner with the Forrest community to investigate opportunities for wastewater improvements in the town.

The strategic partnership was confirmed at a meeting with representatives of the Forrest Wastewater Group with Barwon Water and Council agreeing to allocate resources and funding for the investigation.

The commitment acknowledges the growing role tourism plays in Forrest and the local economy, and the increasing stress this might place on existing wastewater treatment systems.

The project is a great example of a collaborative process supporting the prosperity, health and liveability of the region.
