Western Region Water Corporation (Western Water) has applied for a works approval to upgrade the Gisborne Recycled Water Plant (GRWP) in Gisborne, Victoria. A copy of the works approval application (number 1004391) and appendices can be viewed in the ‘Supporting documents’ section of this page.

For more information on the works approval process see EPA works approvals (publication 1523.2).

What does the application propose?

Western Region Water Corporation is proposing to upgrade the Gisborne Recycled Water Plant situated in Haywood Drive, Gisborne, to increase capacity to service the growing population, improve treated water quality and reduce environmental impacts.

The proposal is for the installation of new technology and to increase the plant capacity to meet a service demand from 14,000 to 29,000 persons. The current Licence discharge limit is proposed to increase from 2.4ML/day to 3.5ML/day. This stage 1 upgrade would also reduce plant energy consumption and improve the quality of recycled water available from the plant. Further, on 1 July 2021, Western Water and City West Water will integrate to form a new water corporation – Greater Western Water.
