St Marys. Water project nearing completion

One of the largest recycled water schemes in Australia, the $250 million Replacement Flows Project, at St Marys, is 90 per cent complete and is on track to begin full operation in September. The plant will soon produce 18 billion litres of recycled water a year, equivalent to the water use of 72,000 Sydney households. This recycled water will be released to the Hawkesbury-Nepean River, replacing water currently released from Warragamba Dam into the river system. Premier Kristina Keneally and Minister for Water, Phil Costa, inspected the final construction stage, which involves the installation of more than 3500 reverse osmosis filters.
