Forrest wastewater investigation

Barwon Water and Colac Otway Shire Council are partnering with the Forrest community to investigate opportunities for wastewater improvements in the township.

This partnership acknowledges the growing role tourism plays in Forrest and the regional economy, and the increasing stress this may place on existing wastewater systems in the town.

Members from the Forrest community have formed the Forrest Wastewater Group to facilitate early discussions with Barwon Water and the Colac Otway Shire.

These groups are working together along with the broader Forrest community to better understand wastewater issues for the community and options to identify solutions.
