Leeton Shire Council has three (3) sewerage treatment plants within Leeton Shire with reticulated services. A new service is in the detailed design phase for Wamoon.
Leeton sewerage system comprises a network of reticulation pipes, carrier mains, pressure mains, pumping stations and a treatment plant on the north eastern side of town. The system serves residential, commercial and two major industries in town. The collected sewage is pumped directly from two major pump stations directly to the Leeton Sewerage Treatment Plant (STP), located in Fivebough Road.
Leeton Sewerage Treatment Plant, now powered by solar, is currently based on a conventional biological trickling filter combined with an Extended Aeration Tank with a total biological capacity of 27,000 EP (equivalent persons). The treated effluent is discharged into the Fivebough Wetland, under license from the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA).
The Yanco sewerage system consists of a conventional gravity sewer collection system, pressure mains and four pump stations.
Yanco Sewerage Treatment Plant is based on “Pasveer Channel” type of aeration treatment system, located in Houghton Road and has a capacity of 1000 EP (equivalent persons). The volume of sewerage treated is approximately 60 megalitres per year. Treated effluent is used for on-site watering of the surrounds, with minimal discharge into the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Drainage System in River Road, under license from the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA).
Whitton sewerage system consists of a conventional gravity collection system, rising mains and pump stations to serve the village area, with a treatment plant located south of the village in the Whitton Common.
Whitton Sewerage Treatment Plant is based on an oxidation pond treatment system with treated effluent discharging into an evaporation area, with no discharge off-site. The plant has a designed capacity of 500 EP (equivalent persons).
