The Council owns and maintains Community Wastewater Management Schemes (CWMS) for the collection, treatment and disposal of domestic wastewater in Tumby Bay and Port Neill townships. In addition to protecting public and environmental health of our community and surrounds, these schemes store treated effluent which is available for beneficial re-use on public areas including foreshore lawns and sporting facilities. Approximately 60 million litres of treated effluent is available for re-use every year, equating to around $200,000 of annual water savings.
Any queries in relation to this service should be directed to the Works Manager via the Council office.
