Storage Dam

A 120 megalitre Wet Weather Storage Dam (WWSD) is located on Bega’s Factory Water Reuse site in Bega and allows operation during rain or flood events.  Factory water is stored for subsequent reuse when irrigation areas require moisture and is a critical part of the businesses risk management strategy.  The WWSD enabled Bega to develop new techniques for wastewater and odour management that may lead to changed practices in the dairy industry.  Land and wetlands are rehabilitated in partnership with “Landcare” and the catchment management association.
