Interim NSW Guidelines for Management of Private Recycled Water Schemes

The Interim NSW Guidelines for Management of Private Recycled Water Schemes (Dept. of Water and Energy, 2008) align the principles outlined in the Australian guidelines to the approvals process for private recycled water schemes (requiring section 68 approval) in NSW.

The Interim NSW Guidelines for Management of Private Recycled Water Schemes (PDF) provide practical advice, including some examples, for obtaining approval to install and operate a private recycled water scheme within the existing NSW legislative framework.

The guidelines replace the NSW Health ‘Interim Guidance for Greywater and Sewage Recycling to Multi-Unit Dwellings and Commercial Premises’ (circular 2004/71).
