This scheme is designed to provide recycled water to parts of new residential suburbs and industrial areas in Sydney's south west.

About Hoxton Park Recycled Water Scheme

Recycled water will be produced at our water recycling plant at Glenfield in Sydney’s south west.

We'll supply recycled water to homes and industrial properties in:

  • Edmondson Park
  • Elizabeth Hills
  • Freemans Ridge
  • Ingleburn Gardens
  • Len Waters Industrial Estate
  • Middleton Grange
  • Panorama Estate
  • Parkbridge Estate
  • Yarrunga Industrial Estate.

Glenfield Water Recycling Plant will produce highly treated recycled water, which will be delivered by dedicated pipelines to homes and businesses within the boundary of the Hoxton Park Recycled Water Scheme.

We plan to start operating this scheme when there are enough properties built and connected to our recycled water pipes. This is to ensure we can provide reliable recycled water services to our customers.

About 4,000 properties have connected to the Hoxton Park scheme so far. We need another 2,500 homes to connect so we can ensure there's enough demand for us to efficiently operate the scheme and produce recycled water that meets water quality guidelines.

We expect that recycled water could start being produced at the plant in 2020-21. We're currently reviewing the number of property connections and preparing a plan to bring the scheme into operation. 

Only properties with recycled water meters and fittings will receive recycled water. Customers in these areas will continue to receive drinking water through their recycled water pipes until there's enough demand for recycled water. We'll notify residents before we start supplying recycled water to their property.
