All biosolids produced at the Karuah Wastewater Treatment Works (WWTW) are beneficially used for mine site rehabilitation.
Recycled water is used for:
- grit and screening washing
- general washdown around site
- grounds irrigation
- irrigation for a range of fodder crops
The recycled water is reused onsite at Hunter Water’s Kuruah Effluent Reuse Enterprise (KERE), which is adjacent to the Karuah WWTW.
Hunter Water recycles approximately 5091 Megalitres per year. Learn more about our recycling and reuse initiatives.
