Water & Sewer

Brewarrina Shire Council (Council) operates a sewage treatment plant in Brewarrina. The property is located on Charlton Road with rural properties surrounding the plant. The Brewarrina Sewerage Treatment Plant (STP) is a trickling filter system with oxidation ponds. The STP operates as a no release site with effluent reuse through an irrigation system on a nearby property. The STP operates under EPL 1748 which is issued under Section 55 of the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 by the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA).

The EPL contains requirements to report pollution incidents as outlined in Section 6, Reporting conditions: The licensee or its employees must notify the EPA of incidents causing or threatening material harm to the environment immediately after the person becomes aware of the incident in accordance with the requirements of Part 5.7 of the Act. R2.1 Notifications must be made by telephoning the Environment Line service on 131 555. R2.2 The licensee must provide written details of the notification to the EPA within seven days of the date on which the incident occurred. The introduction of the Protection of the Environment Legislation Amendment Act 2011 (POELA Act) in February 2012 requires that holders of EPLs maintain a Pollution Incident Response Management Plan (PIRMP).
