Alternative Water

Alternative water refers to water which does not come from the main drinking water supply.

Alternative water comes from a variety of sources including recycled water, stormwater and sewer mining.

We're currently investing in several new alternative water projects in our service area.

We have several stormwater projects currently in operation or underway including Green Gully Reserve, Keilor Park, Keilor Public Golf Course and the Laverton Recreation Reserve Project.

We’re also undertaking major infrastructure works at the Werribee Treatment Plant, including a salt reduction recycled water plant. The plant forms part of the West Werribee Dual Supply Project. The project will see recycled water supplied to residential homes and Council parkland in Wyndham Vale in 2014.
