Water and Sewer

Water

Potable water supply to Warren and Nevertire & Non-Potable supply to Collie.

Two potable water supply schemes are in operation within Warren Shire, one each at Warren and Nevertire. These systems supply drinking water in accordance with the NSW Public Health Act of 2010 and the subsequent 2012 Regulations and delivered to the microbiological standards set within The Current Australian Drinking Water Quality Guidelines.

The Collie system is non-potable but is chlorinated to improve the aesthetic characteristics of the source water.

Sewerage

The sewer is reticulated through a total of 17.1 kms of reticulated mains and 2.4 kms of rising mains for the two schemes and then treated to a quality that adheres to Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997. Warren sewerage is treated through a trickling filter then to evaporation ponds, while Nevertire sewerage is treated through oxidisation ponds.
