Behind the scenes of wastewater treatment
This National Water Week (21 – 27 October 2018), Ballina Shire Council will open their Wastewater Treatment Plant gates to show the community where your water goes and how it’s treated.
“Council has four treatment plants across the Shire, which run 365 days a year and treat 13 million litres of wastewater each day,” said Ms Bridget Walker, Ballina Shire Council’s Manager Water and Wastewater.
The tour is at 10am on Saturday 20 October at the Lennox Head Wastewater Treatment Plant. The free tour will give community members the chance to go behind the scenes to see the state-of-the-art facility in action. This plant also treats wastewater to generate recycled water, which is now servicing over 1,300 Ballina shire households.
