Water Supply

Loddon - supplies Bealiba, Bridgewater, Dunolly, Inglewood, Laanecoorie and Tarnagulla. Raw water is supplied from the Loddon River. Goulburn-Murray Water manages the raw water supply.

Water Treatment

Water is treated at the Bridgewater Water Treatment Plant.

The Water Treatment Process (PDF 43KB) includes coagulation/flocculation, clarification, dual media and Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) filtration, Powdered Activated Carbon (PAC), pH correction, UV and disinfection by chlorination followed by chloramination.

In 2009, we upgraded the plant to improve water quality. We built a reverse osmosis plant to manage the salinity and organics removal from the raw water supply from the Loddon River.



Sewage is treated at the Bridgewater Water Reclamation Plant (WRP).

What happens at the water reclamation plant

Sewage is treated and stored in a lagoon system. Treated water evaporates or is used on surrounding farmland.
