Goulburn Mulwaree Council (Council) is looking to bolster water resilience within the community it services through the development and implementation of the Southern Highlands Water Reuse Infrastructure Scheme (SHWRIS). This scheme will provide drought resilience to playing fields and community recreation spaces through the use of high quality treated water for the purpose of irrigation. This will reduce demand on the potable water network and increase water security, ensuring the Goulburn community enjoys world class facilities and parks all year round.
Goulburn Reuse Scheme Development
Scope of Works
While Goulburn Racecourse and the Cookbundoon sporting fields are the only recipients of recycled water, the Southern Highlands Water Reuse Infrastructure Scheme (SHWRIS) aims to irrigate high quality recycled water from the Goulburn wastewater treatment facility. This will bolster drought resilience, relieve pressure on the potable water network and set in motion the Goulburn Reuse Scheme (GRS) which will operate in 19 residential areas and will be constructed in stages.
The network of pipes, ranging from 63mm to 180mm, will feed over 1500 sprinklers and will be laid across 25 hectares of parks and recreational areas, summing to over 20 Kilometers of irrigation pipelines across Goulburn Mulwaree Council.
