Recycle water, Trust urges
The Killcare Wagstaffe Trust recently urged Gosford Council to take the option of recycled water as part of the solution to the Central Coast's water shortage problems seriously.
The trust claimed it was "critical" that the possible solutions were considered on their commercial and technical merit and that "emotive arguments and vested interests" were kept from the entering the decision making process.
The trust supported the contention of the Federal Government's main water advisory body.
The advisory body contended that "adding recycled water to drinking water would be a good way for major cities to augment their water supplies".
The trust claimed that council had accepted emotive arguments in relation to recycling as a possible solution.
They stated that recycling was likely to be one of the best solutions for reasons of cost, speed of implementation, pre-existing infrastructure, energy efficiency, and low environmental impact.
