The Kyneton Water Reclamation Plant (WRP) treats wastewater from approximately 3,800 connections in Kyneton, Malmsbury, Trentham and Tylden – approximately 7,500 people (according to 2016 Australian Census Data).
The wastewater is collected via 13 pump stations and a sewer network comprising of 80 kilometres of gravity mains and 11 kilometres of rising mains. The sewer network also collects wastewater from the Kyneton industrial estate, which includes an abattoir and the livestock exchange.
Our plant has struggled to store the treated water it produces when there isn’t a demand for irrigation water or sufficient flows to release water to the Campaspe River.
