Harrington Recycled Water Scheme
The Harrington Water Recyling Scheme involves recycling treated effluent from the Harrington Sewage Treatment Plant for irrigation of the nearby Harrington Waters Golf Course. The golf course previously used groundwater for irrigation.
It is estimated that an average of 32 million litres of recycled water will be used by the golf course each year.
The treatment plant has been upgraded to include filtration, ultra violet (UV) disinfection and chlorination. This additional treatement will ensure that recycled water is fit for irrigation with restricted public access and will ensure that it meets the quality required by the Australian Guidelines for Water Recycling
A new recycled water tank has been constructed at the golf course and will be interconnected with the existing irrigation system.
The project was made possible by the funding received under the National Water Security Plan for Cities and Towns
