Goldenfields Water County Council is the water authority for the Coolamon Shire. In recent years, the Shire, like many other areas of Australia, has been significantly impacted by drought which resulted in dramatic changes to water use for households and businesses.
Council is committed to water conservation and has a number of strategies and actions in place to save water in the shire.
Council has been recycling the effluent from the Coolamn Sewerage Treatment Plant for re-use on sporting fields since the mid-1960s. The system was recently upgraded to a first-class tertiary water treatment process by adding a 40 megalitre solar powered storage facility, with improved filtration and chlorination plants. The water is used to irrigate Kindra Park, the Coolamon Sport and Recreation Club and the Jim Thompson sporting fields, providing significant water and cost savings while maintaining local playing fields.
Both the reclaimed water and soil of the application areas are frequently tested to strict license conditions to ensure no environmental harm or public health issues arise.
Town Water Savings
Council aims to save 3.17 million litres of town water each year by increasing the use of synthetic turf in parks, installing centralised watering systems and replacing sprinklers with low water use pop-up Watermark approved systems.
