Our Environmental Responsibility

Water Cycle System

Googong will be so water efficient, its 18,000 residents will use less water than just 6,500 residents would normally use in an average Australian community.

An integrated water cycle management system with a dedicated water treatment and recycling plant for the township will make recycled water available for toilet flushing and garden use. This could reduce potable (drinking) water consumption by around 60%, and recycle well over half of the waste water generated to irrigate open spaces in the township.

We will also use water sensitive urban design to manage water quality and collect storm water to irrigate key streetscapes, ovals and parklands throughout Googong.
