Five Mile Creek and Western Water’s plans to discharge recycled water into Deep Creek

 

Five Mile Creek – Bridge – Romsey

 

There are fears in the community as Western Water plans to discharge recycled water into the Five Mile Creek.

In Romsey at the sewerage plant in Portingales Lane, Western water is proposing to discharge Grade B recycled water into the Deep Creek through the Romsey South Drain over a two year period.

All properties within two kilometres of Romsey South Drain will be affected.

If approved this is likely to occur in April through to October during the normal higher flow and rain rates in Romsey during these times.

Grade B water isn’t suitable for human consumption (drinking) and has restrictions relating to human contact. But it can be used for stock water except for pigs, human crop foods cooked or processed before sale to customers, non-human food production and industrial purposes.

Before applying to the EPA for approval Western Water will undertake community feedback into consideration.
