Improved quality of effluent

AN upgrade of the Banora Point Waste Water Treatment Works upgrade will be brought forward to this financial year thanks to a loan from the State Government.

The $16.8m interest-free loan was announced as Premier Kristina Keneally visited the Tweed yesterday. It will pay for almost half of the upgrade.

Tweed Mayor Warren Polglase said when he met with the Premier on site this morning he explained to her how important the loan was for the community and the environment.

The upgrade will boost capacity from 62,500 people to 75,000 people and will improve the quality of effluent released into local waterways.
