The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) is leading a review of Victoria's recycled water guidance.

The objective of the review is to streamline and clarify approval processes for recycled water schemes, to facilitate an increased uptake of recycled water where risk to the environment and human health is acceptable.

A joint government and industry working group has reviewed, updated and consolidated the most widely used of Victoria’s existing recycled water guidelines into a single, new proposed Victorian Guideline for Water Recycling.

A second document - Technical Information for the Victorian Guideline for Water Recycling - has also been developed to help recycled water scheme managers and users implement aspects of the proposed guideline.

The discussion paper explains the scope of the review, key changes within the proposed new guideline, and reasons for these changes.
