Australian town will recycle half of its water, including sewage

As a township, the Googong development will include retail, commercial, education, recreation, and community services. Together these will provide containment of daily needs, and the general autonomy of the new town extends to the proposed water and sewer infrastructure. (Photo Credit: Googone Water  Cycle Project)

Googone is a new township of 16,000 residents in southeastern Australia that plans to use less water than 7,000 residents in an average Australian community.

The planning has been a few years in design and finally the construction is underway.  It’s a purpose-built, large-scale water efficient community.  An onsite water recycling plant will reduce up to 62% of Googone’s wastewater for non-drinking uses.

Could this be expanded to build a manufacturing community around industrial wastewater recycling?
