Treated recycled water released into Washaway Creek at Tallangatta
1 October 2021
Treated recycled water from the North East Water Wastewater Treatment Plant in Tallangatta will be released into Washaway Creek due to current and persistent wet weather conditions.
The discharge will commence on 1 October 2021.
Holding lagoons at the plant have reached their full capacity following the recent wet weather.
The release is needed to ensure that our dams do not overflow and the discharge of the fully treated water is likely to continue for several weeks.
The water being discharged will be monitored throughout the discharge process and for a period of time following the completion of the discharge process.
We are working with our stakeholders during this process including, including EPA Victoria, North East Catchment Management Authority, Goulburn Murray Water and Towong Shire.
