The Federal Government says a $3.8 million upgrade to Karratha’s wastewater recycling scheme will significantly boost supplies of recycled water.
The Parliamentary Secretary for Sustainability and Urban Water, Don Farrell, has visited Karratha to launch the upgrade, which will increase the supply of recycled water to the community by more than 150-million-litres a year.
Senator Farrell says the water will be used on the shire’s ovals and golf courses.
“Particularly ovals where you can use recycled water on quite safely and this will save water that would have otherwise …. gone to waste,” he said.
“It means we have more water for drinking purposes, which is going to be very important in Karratha as the population grows into the future.”
