Camperdown and the wider Corangamite Shire will benefit from the $1.9 million upgrade to the Camperdown Industrial Sewage Treatment Plant which was completed in 2013.

The upgrade to the facility provides vital sustainable trade waste services for the Camperdown Saleyards and Camperdown Dairy.

The treatment facility is a sustainable solution requiring low levels of energy to operate. It involved converting existing storages into a series of treatment lagoons, 9.2 million-litre winter storage to store treated effluent and the installation for a recirculation system.

This project was aided by a $1 million grant from the Victorian Government. Joint funding was also provided by Wannon Water $304,000, Corangamite Shire Council $303,000 and Aussie Farmers Dairy $303,000.

This plant upgrade is a collaborative project delivering an innovative solution that enables regional growth.
