Work begins on the new Black Rock Recycled Water Plant

A symbolic sod-turning ceremony has marked the start of construction on the new Black Rock Recycled Water Plant.

The state-of-the-art facility will produce high quality Class A recycled water for new residential growth centres including Armstrong Creek and Torquay North, plus improved Class C water for agriculture and recreation.

The recycled water plant will be located adjacent to the existing water reclamation facility in Connewarre, part of the Black Rock Environmental Precinct.

The sod-turning ceremony was attended by Member for South Barwon Andrew Katos MLA, Member for Western Victoria Region David Koch, as well as local leaders and Barwon Water board directors.

The project, due for completion in 2013, is a major milestone in our expanding recycled water network. It will slash recycled water discharges to Bass Strait, provide new recycled water markets, and free up vital drinking water supplies to meet growth and demand.
