$40 Million Dollar Warrnambool Sewage Treatment Plant Upgrade Approved
Wannon Water has welcomed the Environment Protection Authority’s decision to approve its $40 million Warrnambool Sewage Treatment Plant Upgrade Project.
Following its rigorous assessment of Wannon Water’s application, the EPA yesterday issued a Development Licence for the construction of the plant upgrade to go ahead.
“Following many months of consultation and technical review, EPA has now approved the project but has also set very strict conditions that will protect the environment and safeguard the community,” said Steve Adamthwaite, EPA Manager Development Assessments.
“A key condition will be addressing the community’s concerns about the outfall where treated water is discharged to the sea" said Mr Adamthwaite
