Water Reuse & Recycling

Water reuse and recycling is another aspect of water resource management, increasing overall water availability by providing an alternative and additional water supply.

Wastewater is generally the most commonly treated stream for reuse, and across the world, Veolia manages approximately 3,000 wastewater treatment plants, connecting 61 million people to the networks that enable recycling and reuse.

Does Veolia have any strategic partnerships that challenge the status quo when it comes to water reuse and recycling?

Veolia is a foundation partner in the Australian Water Recycling Centre of Excellence, to develop and commercialise new water recycling technologies for the benefit of the nation.

Across Australia and New Zealand, Veolia has been a key stakeholder in implementing large scale water recycling projects benefiting the region, which have enabled irrigation in agriculture, to water parklands and for industrial use.

Where does Veolia have water reuse and recycling projects?

Veolia continues to be a leader in designing, constructing and operating wastewater recycling plants, treating wastewater and creating purified recycled water for reuse.  Some of our major projects include:

  • Queensland – operating the the Western Corridor Recycled Water Scheme’s advanced water treatment plants and pipelines to produce safe, purified recycled water
  • New South Wales - operating the Fairfield Recycled Water Plant, which delivers recycled water to industrial customers in western Sydney and has a capacity of 20 million litres per day after designing and building the plant
  • New South Wales - operating the Gerringong Gerroa Sewerage Scheme, which has a sewerage plant designed to reuse 80 per cent or more of the treated effluent in local farm irrigation after designing and building the plant.
