Ben Lomond Water has proposed to upgrade the Deloraine Wastewater treatment plant to enable the treatment of up to 860 kilolitres per day of municipal  wastewater. The plant is located at the Deloraine racecourse, Racecourse Drive, Deloraine.

The proponent has lodged a Development Application with a supporting Development Proposal and Environmental Management Plan (DPEMP) to the Meander Valley Council.

The application was referred to the Board of the Environment Protection Authority (the Board) for assessment under the Environmental Management and Pollution Control Act 1994 (EMPCA).


Public Exhibition of Documentation and Public Representations

Following the public comment period the proponent was required by the Board to prepare a DPEMP Supplement to address issues raised in public and government agency consultation


Development Proposal and Environmental Management Plan

The purpose of the DPEMP is to provide a source of information upon which interested individuals, groups, government agencies and the Board may consider the environmental and planning impacts of the proposal.
