Work continues on the Goulburn Reuse Scheme, which will achieve outstanding environmental outcomes for the region by allowing treated effluent water to be used for irrigation.
Contractors will next week kick off construction works for the new irrigation system at North Park, which is one of six new facilities which will benefit from new irrigation.
Goulburn Mulwaree Council general manager Warwick Bennett says it is "fantastic to see the irrigation upgrades now commencing, as improving this infrastructure at sporting facilities and parks and gardens is a key element of the project".
These works involve transfer pipeline for the irrigation system and associated fittings, new water tank and pump shed which are scheduled to commence from Monday, November 22.
The construction and commissioning works will take approximately eight weeks. However, North Park may not be suitable to use within the construction period.
Key locations to be serviced by the Goulburn water reuse scheme include the Carr Confoy sporting fields, Cookbundoon, Hudson Park, the Goulburn Recreation Area, Goulburn Golf Club, Victoria Park and the Eastgrove South sporting fields.
The system will have capacity to be expanded in the future to provide treated effluent for industrial uses, creating the potential to attract high demand water industries to Goulburn, opening up a new stream of economic development.
