Sewage plant gets go-ahead

PLANS for a $30 million upgrade of the Banora Point sewage treatment plant, and demolishing then building a new treatment plant at West Tweed Heads, have been approved by Tweed Shire councillors.

The Banora Point plant has been operating since 1978 and the Tweed Heads West plant since the 1960s with both plants discharging into Terranora Creek on outgoing tides.

Council officers said the upgrade work would improve effluent quality and the planned increase in the volume of discharge would be offset by measures to improve the health of the creek.
