Yass Sewerage System

The Yass Sewage Treatment Plant commenced its operation in March 2010, with the old treatment plant, built in 1935, decommissioned. The new plant is capable of treating sewage for 6,800 Equivalent Population (EP) and has the facility for future expansion for 10,800 EP. 

Council has plans to utilise a portion of the effluent to irrigate the playing fields around town.

Discharged Effluent Quality from Yass STP

Treated effluent produced by Yass STP meets the Sensitive Water Standards and has been discharged to the Yass River since March 2010. This plant operates under the Environment Protection Licence 1730.
