As part of the Metropolitan Water Plan, other schemes are being developed to increase recycled water for irrigation purposes.


For example, in Hoxton Park, construction is underway to irrigate the Ingleburn Industrial Park, Forest Lawn Cemetery and three new golf courses.

Also, as part of the upgrade of West Camden Sewage Treatment Plant, Sydney Water will supply almost two billion litres per year of high quality treated wastewater for irrigating turf, watering crops and dairy grazing land.
