EPA calls for public comment on proposed sewage treatment upgrade for Warrnambool

The Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA) is calling for public comment on a proposed sewage treatment plant upgrade for Warrnambool.

Wannon Water has applied for an EPA Works Approval for the upgrade of the plant at Elliot St, Warrnambool.

The proposed plant upgrade is designed to increase capacity to meet the city’s demand for sewage and wastewater treatment until 2040.

In assessing the Works Approval application, EPA considers any potential effects on climate change, groundwater, surface water, soil, noise, odour, air quality, waste and any potential hazards to people’s health.

The EPA encourages members of the public to ask any questions about the Works Approval process or Wannon Water’s proposal, via the link on the Engage Vic website.

Locals can find the application documents and have the opportunity to lodge a submission on this Works Approval application, are open until 17 June 2020, and EPA expects to announce its decision in August.
