Water Management

Our mining operations at New Acland uses recycled water purchased from the Toowoomba Regional Council’s Wetalla wastewater reclamation facility.

The $30 million pipeline and pumping system, from Wetalla to the mine, was funded by New Hope. Less than 30 per cent of Wetalla’s water is purchased by New Hope with the majority of the water discharged down Gowrie Creek and available to local irrigators.

Any water used or captured on our site is recycled and reused.
