New recycled water plant for Portarlington

A NEW water-recycling initiative will provide high-quality water to the Bellarine, unlocking new agricultural and horticulture production opportunities including wineries and farm gate tourism. A new water reclamation plant at Portarlington will secure year-round access to water for local producers in times of lower than average rainfall, giving them the confidence to grow their businesses in the region.

The new infrastructure will provide water security for local farmers and businesses, with a guaranteed high-quality water supply irrespective of seasonal conditions. The future of key local industries will be secured, dozens of local jobs will be created, and reliance on drinking water for agriculture will be reduced while preserving Bellarine Peninsula’s unique landscape.

The innovative project involves installing an ultra-filtration and reverse osmosis plant to produce fit-for-purpose recycled water.
