Keeping the environment safe and you informed

Whyalla wastewater treatment plant was commissioned in 1966 to meet the growing community’s needs, with a second plant installed to improve capacity and process in 2008.

Treated wastewater from the second plant is recycled for irrigation of the community golf course and playing fields. Remaining wastewater is treated to a level where it can be safely discharged via a tidal channel to the mangrove swamp on the coast of Spencer Gulf.

Take a tour: School and community groups can book guided tours of one of our WWTPs for a behind the scenes look into how we treat sewage and use it to keep our city cool and green. Find out more.
