Googong Recycled Water

Menu

Googong will be so water efficient, its 18,000 residents will use less water than just 6,500 residents would normally use in an average Australian community. 

Googong Township Pty Ltd has constructed a state of the art Water Recycling Plant at Googong to service the eventual 18,000 residents that will live in the new town. The Plant will be handed over to Queanbeyan City Council when testing is complete and recycled water is being returned to houses, businesses and schools. The Plant is in the final stages of testing, with recycled water expected to be available for Googong properties in 2016.

Recycled water is a new concept for Queanbeyan, but has been used in many other areas of Australia over the past 15 years, including the Sydney Olympic Park Water Reclamation and Management Scheme, Barwon Water’s Northern Water Plant in Victoria and the Rouse Hill Recycled Water System in Sydney. One of the key goals of Queanbeyan City Council is to ensure that residents are aware of the uses of recycled water, how the system works and what their responsibilites are.
