New pipeline at Barwon Park

Barwon pipeline

Barwon Water and the National Trust of Australia have installed an underground recycled water pipeline to connect the Winchelsea Water Reclamation Plant to Barwon Park.

The 1.8km pipeline now supplies Barwon Park with recycled water to irrigate farmland.

Construction began in August 2023 and has just been completed.

“This project will help Barwon Water achieve our Strategy 2030 aim to reuse 100 per cent of the recycled water produced at our water reclamation plants,” Barwon Water general manager planning, delivery and environmental Seamus Butcher said.

“Partnering with the National Trust has delivered a win-win for both our organisations through the beneficial allocation of 80 million litres of recycled water for agricultural use at the Barwon Park property.”

National Trust of Australia (Victoria) interim chief executive officer Philip Martins welcomed the initiative.

“At the National Trust, our vision for preserving the past also gives us an understanding of what we need to do to improve the future,” Mr Martins said.

“The National Trust is a strong advocate for conservation and sustainability in our built and natural environments and this recycled water project is a creative and innovative planning and design solution to save water at the Barwon Park Mansion while keeping our grounds green year-round.”
