Major sewage treatment plant capacity increase for Hervey Bay site selection

Fraser Coast Regional Council is engaging with the community to seek feedback on a range of options for Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) upgrade locations and release of the additional recycled water generated in order to meet the needs of our growing population. The consultation activities will also explore new opportunities for recycling water, (regardless of which treatment plant location is upgraded), in order to add to the current expansive irrigation program with turf farms, cane fields and hardwood forests, one of Australia’s largest.

The engagement opportunities are spread over two stages including:

  • A Community Panel made up of a representative sample of people from across the Fraser Coast region who will deliberate on the three options that are being explored and consider new alternative options;
  • Wider community engagement involving Workshops, Community Information Stalls, Site Tours and Key Stakeholder Interviews will be commencing from 21 September.
