The $3.6 million innovative Warrnambool Brine Receival Facility is a unique development that provides multiple benefits for the south-west region.

It provides a much-needed sustainable, local solution for treating salty trade waste from some of the region's largest industries and enables regional economic growth. It also reduces demand on drinking water supplies by using recycled water at the screening plant and belt press at the Warrnambool Sewage Treatment Plant.

The project, jointly funded with $537,602 from the Victorian Government, was officially opened on Friday 4 October 2013.
