Recycled Water Irrigation Schemes in ACT
The North Canberra Water Reuse Scheme (NCWRS) scheme began as a pilot in 1972 and was commissioned on a large scale in 2004. It now delivers water for irrigation to seven sites totalling 70 hectares across North Canberra.
In the Southwell Park Watermining Project a small treatment plant supplies treated effluent for irrigation of 10 hectares of sporting fields. This process is known as Watermining®
A proportion of the wastewater treated at Lower Molonglo Water Quaity Control Centre (LMWQCC) is supplied to nearby vineyards (100 hectares) and a golf course (30 hectares) for irrigation.
