The Temora Township is currently serviced by Council’s Sewerage Treatment Plant (STP), which operates under a NSW EPA licence (No: 2523). The STP is located on Teal Street, approximately 3km north of the town centre. As of July 2023, the system services 2160 connections (residential & non-residential), which combined equates to an estimated equivalent population (EP) of 4,750.
The STP was originally constructed around 1930 with a design capacity of 4500 EP. The treatment plant was upgraded in 2005 to address the following concerns:
The existing treatment plant was decommissioned and the treatment process was replaced with an inlet works and lagoon based treatment system with the design capacity remaining the same at 4500 EP. The STP currently treats approximately 800kL of sewage daily in dry weather, potentially reaching 6 times this volume during heavy rain periods. The STP contains the following main process units:
Effluent is pumped from Pond 6 at the treatment plant to four storage dams located around the town. These storage dams also receive inflow from stormwater runoff. From the storage dams, 100% of effluent produced is recycled to Council’s numerous parks and gardens within urban Temora.
