White Leeds Wetlands
18 Sep 2012
Description

Treated effluent, previously discharged into the local creek, now forms the 4.5 hectare arid zone wetland located at White Leeds Station in Far West NSW. Nutrients are removed by means of reeds that have been planted from the on-site nursery. Natural revegetation has occurred since the abundant rain in February 2010 and this has changed the status of this asset. The water also offers opportunities to reduce the extraction of water from the Murray-Darling System and increase the use of recycled water for the greening of parks and reserves which currently use rainwater or potable water from the Murray-Darling system. The project has the capacity to harvest, collect and naturally process about 3.2 gigalitres of water per year on top of the 750 megalitres of treated effluent processed.
