Over 30 infrastructure projects have been approved under the $110 million Regional Water and Wastewater Backlog Program.

Projects include a new water treatment plant and reticulation network for White Cliffs, a new sewerage collection process at Stuarts Point, and upgrades to the Wentworth sewerage system.

Minister for Primary Industries, Lands and Water, Niall Blair, said the funding will help boost vital water and waste water services through new infrastructure builds and modernisation.

“It’s important we have the right infrastructure in place for our regional communities who rely heavily on the reliable access to clean water and sewerage services for their future growth and prosperity," Mr Blair said. 

“Right across regional NSW we continue to improve water and sewerage services,” Mr Blair said.

The Regional Water and Wastewater Backlog Program is part of the dedicated Restart NSW infrastructure fund that continues to deliver first-class infrastructure projects across the state.
