Water Conservation and Management

Stormwater is collected in a freshwater dam at the southern end of the site and used by the site water truck for spraying internal roads for dust suppression.

Leachate, which is a contaminated liquid that seeps from the landfilled waste, is collected, and stored in a fully lined dam.

The collected leachate is treated in a specialised treatment plant on the site (constructed in 2018), which processes up to 500,000 litres per day of potentially harmful leachate and discharges the treated leachate into the local sewerage system in accordance with an agreement with Sydney Water.
