GREEN GIGS AND GOVERNMENT TENDERS: Water recycling in Melbourne, market researcher to assess customer satisfaction with Sydney’s train systems and other sustainable work to keep the wheels turning through these challenging times.


Recycled water is already an important component of Australia’s water conservation strategy but most places have far from realised their water recycling potential.

The South East Water Corporation, one of Melbourne’s three state owned water retailers, is looking for local, south east Melbourne laboratory works and sampling assistance.

As per the contract, labs will assist across five fields: drinking and recycled water, trade waste, tech support and environmental services, recycling water plants and rain-to-hot services.

South East Water provides water services to 1.75 million Australians. By learning more about how to safely treat and use recycled water, there’s hope these water saving strategies can spread across the country.
