The Sydney Society of Sustainable and Environmental Engineering extends an invitation to join us for a field tour of Rouse Hill, Australia’s largest community water recycling scheme.
Over 19,000 homes use 1.7 billion litres of recycled water each year for flushing toilets, watering gardens, washing cars and other outdoor uses.
On average the Rouse Hill scheme has reduced demand for drinking water by about 40%. Eventually the scheme will serve 36,000 homes.
The area includes parts of Acacia Gardens, Beaumont Hills, Castle Hill, Glenwood, Kellyville, Kellyville Ridge, Parklea, Quakers Hill, Stanhope Gardens, The Ponds and, of course, Rouse Hill.
The Rouse Hill Water Recycling Plant treats about 4.7 billion litres of wastewater each year for residential use.
