Bringing recycled water to Bayside, Kingston, Greater Dandenong and Monash Local Government Areas for use in nurseries and the irrigation of public open spaces and golf courses.
We're currently planning the Dingley Recycled Water Scheme, which will deliver recycled water to around 40 sites in the Bayside, Kingston, Greater Dandenong and Monash Local Government Areas. Supplying local parks, world-class golf courses, sporting ovals, laundromats, market gardens and nurseries, the scheme will help preserve drinking water supply, regardless of changing climate conditions.
The Victorian Government announced part funding for the scheme as part of the delivery of the Central and Gippsland Regional Sustainable Water strategy, which aims to improve water security, liveability and waterway health for the next 40 years.
The project will cost approximately $72 million of which the Victorian Government has committed $24 million. The rest will be funded by South East Water and customers of the scheme.
