Reclaimed Water Quality

​​​​​​​​​​​Under licence from the NSW Environmental Protection Authority (EPA), reclaimed water produced at our Water Reclamation Plants (WRPs)is supplied for reuse through our "purple pipe" reclaimed water distribution network to many users in our community. Any excess reclaimed water which cannot be utilised by our community reclaimed water users, is discharged into the Pacific Ocean through our Deep Sea Release.

Coffs Harbour City Council monitors the quality of the treated water discharged from our WRPs in accordance with the requirements of the NSW EPA. The results from this regular water quality monitoring are updated monthly and made available for anyone to view electronically or in hard copy.

Hard copies of this monitoring data are available upon request at no charge. To request a copy of our WRP water quality monitoring data, please contact Coffs Harbour Council's Coastal Works Water and Sewer Team on 02 6648 4000.

N.B. It is a condition of use of our published data that you contact Councils Section Leader Water and Sewer on 02 6648 4410 prior to any use to ensure the suitability of the data for the intended purpose.
