Review of the Recycled Water Guidelines

The public consultation phase of the Review of the Recycled Water Guidelines has recently concluded. This marks a major milestone in the review which was instigated by the water industry in 2018, with an emphasis on reducing red tape associated with recycled water scheme approvals and operations.

In late October, VicWater hosted two virtual ‘drop in sessions’ for water corporations (and representatives from the alpine resorts) to discuss the draft Recycled Water Guidelines and form the basis for a detailed submission.

The DELWP Recycled Water Working Group, which includes four water industry representatives (Western Water, Goulburn Valley Water, South East Water and VicWater) alongside DELWP, EPA and DHHS will oversee the integration of feedback and finalisation of the guidelines in late 2020 or early 2021.
