About Council

Wastewater Projects

Each year council invests millions of dollars on major projects to provide and improve essential wastewater services for our customers.

These major projects are a key part of council's commitment to:

  • Protect our community, waterways and environment against wastewater overflows; and
  • Boost the capacity of our wastewater treatment plants and networks to meet the region's population demands. 

There are a number of major wastewater projects currently underway across the region. Information on each project can be accessed by clicking on the relevant link in the following table.
