Recycled water – Chisholm

Recycled Water Chisholm

Delivering recycled water to Chisholm from 6 May 2019

From 6 May 2019 we will supply recycled water to 355 homes in Chisholm. These homes were fitted with dual water/recycled water systems when they were constructed, enabling them to meet BASIX requirements.

*Residents of Thornton North: if you have a purple water meter we will contact you over coming months. Your suburb will continue to receive drinking water through your recycled water system until further notice.

Recycled water is treated to a high level and must comply with Australian Guidelines for Water Recycling and the requirements of NSW Health. Recycled water is suitable for flushing toilets, washing cars, watering gardens and machine washing clothes. It must not be used for drinking, cooking, bathing, or filling swimming pools.

Is your home ready? The project team are happy to answer your questions – you can email us at here or use the 'Ask us a question' tab below.

Q & A

  • All of the new houses around my house do not have the purple meters. Does this mean we are not part of the recycled water program

    PeterH asked over 1 year ago

    Hi Peter, thanks for your question. The recycled water scheme covers existing homes which will already have a purple meter installed, plus a few new homes with a previously approved DA to connect to the recycled water scheme. Some homes had a DA approved with a rainwater tank, instead of a recycled water connection, to meet BASIX requirements. These homes with rainwater tanks will not be receiving recycled water and will not have a purple meter. Our plumbing contractor, H L Mullane, will soon be double-checking for meters along the streets. If you are not sure whether you will be receiving recycled water please email us here with your name and street address and we will confirm. Please let us know if we can assist further. Jen
