Long time between drinks for water recycling group
IT'S been a long time between drinks for members of the Yamba Water Recycling Management Committee, but that's about to change.
After a five-year break, the group will meet again on May 8 as it starts work overseeing the next stage of the Yamba sewerage augmentation.
Clarence Valley Council general manager Scott Greensill said annual updates on the scheme had been provided, but the group had not met while a location for a proposed ebb-tide release was finalised and the Iluka sewerage scheme was being constructed.
"I hope the long break means there's going to be renewed interest in this group, because it was lagging beforehand," he said.
Mr Greensill said the committee's role was to assist in developing and implementing the integrated recycled water management strategy for the Yamba area.
One of the aims, he said, was to maximise the use of recycled water.
The meeting will be held in the Treelands Dr Community Centre, Yamba, on May 8 from 5.30pm.
