Deniliquin Effluent Re-use Scheme funded
The NSW Minister for Primary Industries, Katrina Hodgkinson has announced funding for the design and construction of the Deniliquin Effluent Re-use Scheme. The funding will be provided through the $1.2 billion Country Towns Water Supply and Sewerage Program.
“In moving to a system where the effluent is recycled through the use of treated water for irrigation, the upgraded Deniliquin Sewerage Scheme will protect public health and achieve long term sustainable agricultural and environmental outcomes,” Ms Hodgkinson said.
Once the new scheme is operational, up to 100 per cent of the effluent will be available for re-use for a range of agricultural purposes.
The NSW Government’s financial assistance subsidy for the project will be at the rate of 50 per cent.
