Dalby leads the way in recycled water ... for non-potable reuse ...

Dalby Recycled Water Plant

The Dalby Recycled Water Plant treats approximately 2 mega litres or 2 million litres of household reclaimed water per day of which one third is currently treated to a Class A standard. 

The Class A recycled water is used to supply water to the Golf Club, Turf Club and South State School for turf irrigation.

Council is upgrading the treatment plant to provide Class A+ recycled water to homes in the Trinity Green Estate via a dual reticulation system and to the Dalby Bio-Refinery upon completion.

When recycled water is provided to these two projects the Dalby plant will be recycling approximately 75 per cent of all household reclaimed water.

It is a pity that Toowoomba's A class water is to only go to Acland coal mine and we have a $15M debt to boot. We are supposed to be renowned for our parks and garden and this water could have been used on them and at a much smaller cost to the ratepayer.

By the number of tankers that line up at the Middleridge park getting tanker after tanker of bore water for all sorts of uses it would seem that we will not run out of water either any time in the near future.

Has any one seen the latest of the scare tactic adds on WIN TV telling us to use our tanks and not the town water. TRC is footing the bill for these adds. It would seem they want the community so worried that they will accept the expensive Wivenhoe pipeline as our only solution and it's not and they all know it!
The other add they were running was an out and out lie.
They told the public that it is not industry and agriculture who use the most water , it is the householder.
Shame on them.

Congratulations to Dalby as it will be the first to try most things to do with water because they will soon have coal seam gas water too for their town water supply.

What is this council doing for us to earn their hefty pay increases?
Well it is not getting a water supply.

How much is Acland paying for the recycled water? And what indyustry in Toowoomba is using more water than the households of Toowoomba?

The facts are that residences use 6% of the water supply and industry and agriculture use the rest (96%).
It is criminal to use these adds to scare the people.
The Acland coal mine uses all of Toowoomba's recycled water as well as water from a bore that could supply a small city.
Norwin farmers have water for them self and have water to spare for us if a Government were so inclined.

6% seems a little light!

And 6% + 96% = 102%!
